Free Bariatric Surgery Education Seminar
Educational Seminars are the first step to starting our program but you are not under any commitment by attending. You will be presented with information to help assist you in understanding the procedures available and the process for preparing for surgery.
Once accepted into the program, you will be required to attend a specific number of support groups based on your insurance. They are free to attend and no registration is required.

Westchester Medical Center has now made it incredibly convenient to learn about the surgical options available at WMC * This educational webinar is available 24/7 from the privacy of your own computer. As the webinar covers the same content presented at our live seminars, completing the webinar will satisfy the mandatory seminar requirement.
All you have to do is clink on the link below and follow the prompts. You will be required to watch the entire webinar completely and answer questions throughout. If you stop the webinar and come back to it later, it will generate an “incomplete” report and you will then need to start from the beginning. So please allow yourself adequate time to start and finish . It should take you approximately 60 minutes.
Once you have viewed the webinar I will receive notification with your information. I will then forward that information to Advanced Surgeons who will contact you to ask if you would like to make an appointment to see one of the surgeons. You will have the opportunity at your consultation to ask all the questions you may have.
*This webinar is intended only for patients considering bariatric surgery at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, NY.
