« Healthcare Highlights WVU Bariatrics: A New You You may have heard about bariatric surgery, or know someone who has tried it, but how can you be sure if bariatric surgery is right for you? If you have attempted multiple diet and exercise programs but haven't kept the weight off, or if you are 100 pounds or more overweight and committed to a healthy lifestyle, bariatric surgery may be an option for you. Attend one of our free information sessions held the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at the WVU Health Sciences Center to learn about different weight loss procedures offered, including roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery, adjustable gastric banding, and sleeve gastrectomy. This meeting is mandatory for all potential patients and reservations are required. Please call (304) 293-1728 to register for a session.
