- Either Dr. George Kerlakian or Dr. Kevin Tymitz will review TriHealth Weight Management surgical weight loss programs.
- They will discuss each procedure, in detail, as well as go over the risks and benefits of bariatric surgery.
- Our team will answer any questions you may have about the procedures.
2. Complete the Necessary Forms
If you decide you want a physician consultation after watching the video seminar, please print, complete and bring these patient forms to your first visit.
3. Measure Your BMI
The most common measurement for obesity is Body Mass Index (BMI), which provides general parameters of degrees of obesity. It should not be used alone for diagnosis of obesity. Calculate your BMI.
