Sign Up For A Weight Management Seminar

Not sure if a Gastric Bypass or a Sleeve Gastrectomy weight-loss surgery is right for you? Join Dr. Sudhakaran at a Weight Management Seminar near you. He can help you assess what type of bariatric surgery is the best option for you and whether or not you qualify for the surgery. He will also share what you can expect from each type of surgery, including preparing for the surgery, your recovery process and life after a bariatric surgery.

During the seminar you will also learn about all the programs and resources that will be available to you during your weight-loss journey. This is a great opportunity to get answers to all of your questions and a good understanding of the bariatric procedures available at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital - Centralia.

Get Your Patient Packet

To proceed with a bariatric surgery, you will need to complete a patient packet. Download the patient application packet and bring the completed copy to the seminar with you. Or, you can email it to and a patient advocate will contact you to discuss next steps.
