Step 1: Getting Started

Calculate your BMI

To qualify for surgery patients must have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater, or a BMI of at least 35 and also have obesity-related health problems. This usually means being at least 100 pounds over ideal body weight.

Enter in your height and weight to the right to calculate your BMI.

Schedule a Seminar

We want all of our patients to be successful, and that starts with education. It is important to learn about all of the procedures available so that you can better choose the surgery that is right for you. For this reason it is required that all patients attend a bariatric seminar.

Most seminars are on Fridays & are usually around lunch time, however, we occasionally will have an evening seminar or a seminar at a remote location. The seminar schedule is listed below once you have registered a registration packet will be e-mailed to you with all of the details. Please complete the online seminar registration form to register. You may also call the office at (501) 227-9080 to register or for more information. Please note that seminar availability is on a first come, first serve basis, and seating is limited.
