Weight Loss Seminars

The first step to joining the Turning Point program and requesting bariatric surgery is to attend an informational seminar. Turning Point informational seminars are open to anyone who is researching weight loss surgery options.

The seminars provide information on the history of obesity, treatment options, surgical procedure review and surgery complications and offer time for questions and answers.

A packet of informational tools and required documentation will be provided at the end of the seminar. Potential patients must review bariatric patient information packet instructions as well as complete the questionnaire and insurance information forms and return the completed packet by mail (pre-addressed envelope provided) or in person to the Tallgrass General, Vascular and Bariatric Surgery office, which is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

SATURDAY MEETINGS:

All sessions are held on the second Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to noon at St. Francis Health, 1700 SW 7th Street, in the Auditorium on the second floor. Please arrive early to sign in, as the doors close promptly at 10am. Those arriving late will be asked to attend another Seminar.
