Since 2002, The Bariatric Center of Kansas City has been a leader in Kansas City weight loss surgery, providing surgical excellence within a compassionate atmosphere along with lifelong quality bariatric patient aftercare.
As the highest volume center in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area,The Bariatric Center of Kansas City has provided weight loss surgery services to over 8000 patients in Kansas City and throughout the Midwest.
Our program provides all the essential components, as recommended by the National Institute of Health, to achieve successful laparoscopic weight loss surgery. Our program partner, Shawnee Mission Health at Prairie Star, has been accredited as a Comprehensive Center by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation & Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a designation only awarded to those centers who meet the highest standards in quality patient care.
Potential patients are required to attend one of our free informational seminars to learn more about our services, bariatric surgical options, and whether they might be a good candidate for bariatric surgery before scheduling a personal consultation with one of our surgeons to begin their "bariatric journey". Upcoming seminars are listed below.
When registering for one of the seminars, look for the link to the new patient forms packet that will allow you to download and print our new patient intake forms. You can then bring the completed forms to leave with our new patient coordinator at the seminar to get your bariatric journey started that much faster. Completion of the forms packet to bring to the seminar is not mandatory, but they will be required before a surgical consult can be scheduled.
If you are a potential patient that lives outside of the Kansas City Metro Area, and are more than two hours driving distance away, please contact our new patient coordinator, Connie Brubeck, to discuss alternative options in lieu of attending a seminar to start the new patient process. She can be reached at 913.677.6319.
