Pathways to Surgery

Weight loss surgery is a useful tool for weight loss.  But, like all “tools”, it is useless if you don’t know how to use it!  Join a small group of up to 10-15 people to learn the 5 Lifelong Habits for Surgical Success, and prepare for weight loss surgery. Groups are led by an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN), Registered Dietitian (RD), and Exercise Physiologist.  The class meets once per month for 5 total sessions.
