When you decide to have bariatric surgery, you need to make a commitment to a sustainable lifestyle change, not just until you have lost the excess weight. We believe it’s best for you to know the extent of that commitment by introducing yourself to our weight loss program from the comfort of your own time and space. Our online video sessions are designed to answer your basic questions, inform you of particulars regarding our surgical processes, and help you navigate your first step toward a new life and healthy weight.

Generally speaking, by completing a short series of information videos, you’ll better understand your readiness for our program. These information sessions are always free and easy to begin and delivered by one of our esteemed surgeons, Dr. Salim Hosein.

Please note: Due to increasing case rates of COVID-19, in-person information sessions, customarily hosted by SIH New Life Weight Loss Center, are not being offered at this time.
