Medical Monday: Bariatric surgery seminars

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

(WXOW) – When weight management becomes a significant health concern, there’s the option to undergo Bariatric surgery. But, how do you know it’s right for you without discussing what can be a sensitive topic?

Gundersen Health System Bariatric surgery program director Marisa Pruitt said they provide a free online seminar for those considering the option. Since seminar attendance is required as a first step in the program, Pruitt said this removes barriers for those who may be nervous.

Because of the popularity so far of the online seminars, Gundersen has now discontinued its in-person seminars. Accessible 24/7, the online seminar features an abbreviated version of the in-person seminar. It outlines all non-surgical and surgical options as well as the risks, benefits and outcomes.
