At the Loyola Center for Metabolic Surgery & Bariatric Care, we want you to get started as quickly as possible on your path to weight loss. Whether you feel ready to start a Loyola weight-loss program now or are unsure about what path to take, you can learn a lot – and get answers to your questions – at one of our free informational seminars. The seminar will examine the risks of medically significant obesity, how a partnership with our bariatric health experts can help, and the surgical options available to you.

We offer two types of seminars: in-person and online


Our in-person seminars are held several times a month throughout Chicago. They last approximately 60 minutes. At the end, you will have the chance to speak to one of our surgeons to help answer any additional questions you may have. The seminars are very valuable and offer detailed information regarding your weight loss options.

To view a list of our upcoming seminars, please see our calendar. 


Understanding that you may not be able to attend one of our live seminars, we have created an online seminar that offers the same information.

This seminar will take approximately 40 minutes to complete, and contains ten quiz questions throughout to ensure you understood the information that was presented. You will need to reach a score of 80 percent in order to move on to the next step, and will have three attempts to pass the seminar.

We encourage you to have pen and paper hand to write down any questions you may have, and bring that with you to your consultation.

You will need to have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player on your computer to allow the presentation to play and can download it for free  here.

The Online Seminar must be completed on a laptop or desktop computer (cannot be done on an iphone, ipad, kindle or other PDA's).

After you finish the online seminar you MUST complete you Patient Information Packet in order to make your first appointment.
