It's easy! If you would like comprehensive information about bariatic surgery, we hold free regularly scheduled educational seminars to discuss and explain the benefits and outcomes. We want to help you fully understand the entire procedure and make the best choice. At the seminar you will also meet the surgeon and our Michigan Bariatric Institute staff who can answer any questions you may have.
Call the Michigan Bariatric Institute at 810-985-1650 to inquire about upcoming seminar dates and times, or to request an information be mailed to your home. We will be happy to discuss your individual situation, your insurance question or any other concerns.
If you have already decided that laparoscopic bariatric surgery is what you desire, then you will start the process by completing a short application, insurance information, health and diet surveys, and a personal letter of interest. We will gladly send this packet to you in the mail.
Once the application is completed, a consultation can be scheduled with either of our Centers of Excellence designated surgeons. At this appointment, the procedure will be discussed with you, a medical history will be completed, recommendations for any pre-operative testing that will be required will be made, and a tentative date of surgery will be scheduled!
At this same time, you will also meet with the program director, dietitian and insurance specialist at a comprehensive pre-op class.
