Bariatric Surgery Educational Seminar

The First Step

To learn if bariatric surgery might be right for you, join Dr. Terry Pinson and staff for a free seminar at the NMMC Wellness Center. Because of limited space, pre-registration is required. Call (662) 377-SLIM (7546) or 1-866-908-9465 to reserve your spot. Attendance is free and also mandatory prior to the first clinic appointment being scheduled with the Bariatric Clinic.

As an added convenience, an Online Bariatric Educational Seminar is also available.

Some of the material discussed at this seminar may not be appropriate for children, so we ask that they not accompany you; however, your spouse or significant other is encouraged to attend.

After you attend the seminar, look over the New Patient Informational Packet and make the decision to pursue bariatric surgery, please call the Bariatric Clinic to make your initial consultative appointment. Appointments are necessary to better utilize the time of both the patient and surgeon. You may call our office at 662-377-SLIM (377-7546) or toll free at 1-866-908-9465 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday to schedule an appointment.

Now that the Bariatric Center is designated as an Accredited Center by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program and is recognized in the Optum Centers of Excellence Network, weight loss surgery at NMMC is covered by more health plans, including those for teachers, state employees and many offered by employers. So, check your health plan benefits, talk to your doctor and weigh your options.
