Description

Led by a Board Certified Bariatric Surgery Specialist, Dr. Wennergren from Utah Surgical Associates along with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kimball Crofts at Mountain Point Medical Center provides patients with the practical knowledge needed to prepare for bariatric surgery, hospitalization, recovery and a better quality of life. Lose the weight and get back to being YOU!

Who Should Attend? If you or a loved one are having, or are considering, surgery as a means to lose weight, you should attend the Mountain Point Bariatric Seminar. This class will help you determine if bariatric surgery is an option. In addition, you’ll be equipped with key information needed to facilitate preoperative preparations, hospitalization, discharge, recovery and home care. We encourage those considering surgery to identify a care partner who can provide assistance before, during and after surgery. Care partners should also attend the Bariatric Seminar.

The Bariatric Seminar will help you to better understand:

• Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery, its options, risks and benefits.

• Causes, symptoms and treatment options for excess weight gain.

• How to be an active partner in your care during hospitalization.

• Pre- and post-surgical exercises to strengthen key muscle groups.

• Postoperative medication and pain management.

• Diet/exercise needs and home care following your surgery.

• Lifestyle changes to maximize bone, joint and muscle health.


Complimentary Registration: Registration for the Bariatric Weight Loss Seminar is free of charge. If you are considering bariatric surgery or if you will be caring for someone undergoing surgery, we encourage you to attend the Bariatric Seminar at your earliest convenience. Comfortable attire is also recommended.
