Attend a Weight Loss Seminar

Choosing weight loss surgery isn’t an easy decision. That’s why the Sentara Martha Jefferson Bariatric Care Center team requires everyone to attend our informational seminar, About Bariatric Surgery, prior to their first appointment. Led by one of our bariatric surgeons, the seminar can help you answer these basic questions about bariatric surgery:

  • Is weight loss surgery the best option for me?
  • What specific type of bariatric surgery will help me meet my weight loss goals?
  • What other services does Sentara Martha Jefferson's Bariatric Care Center offer to support my needs?
  • What is the next step?

To make it more convenient for you, you have a choice: you can either attend the seminar in person or online. In both cases, the seminar is free and registration is required. 

Option 1: Attend a live seminar

Our live seminars are held once a month, usually on the third Friday of the month. If you are interested in attending a live seminar, please reserve your place at the program by completing our online form or by calling 434-654-7009 or 1-888-652-6663.

Prior to coming to the seminar, please print your Medical History Questionnaire, which is required to begin the program. Please fill it out completely and bring it with you to the seminar.

Option 2: Complete the seminar online

You can also opt to view the seminar from our online video. After you complete the video, you will have the opportunity to let us know if you would like to be contacted by a member of our team to set up your appointment.
