Start Your Path to Living Lighter

To start the bariatric surgery process, we recommend you attend a free informational session OR view an online informational session. Attending the session in person will give you a chance to meet our team of bariatric specialists and ask questions about our program. After attending the seminar or viewing the online session, you will receive a call from our program coordinator to schedule a visit with the surgical team.

Not sure a group informational setting is for you? Set up a one-on-one consultation to discuss your qualifications for weight-loss surgery and to get started on the path to life-changing weight loss.

If you have questions, please call (708) 763-6398 or watch our online seminar right now.

After meeting with one of our surgeons, please contact the Chicago Center for Bariatric Surgery  at Westlake Hospital. Our staff will assist you in navigating through the next steps and insurance requirements. These steps may include, but are not limited to:

  • Submission of insurance requirements and documentation.
  • Consultations with our clinical psychologist, dietitian, bariatric surgeon and other specialists such as a cardiologist and pulmonologist.
  • Attendance at bariatric support group meetings prior to surgery.
  • Completion of any additional diagnostic tests.
