make the best choice for you – because you deserve the best. At
the seminar, you will meet the surgeon and Lake Huron Bariatric Center's

The Application Process
If you and your doctor have made the decision that laparoscopic bariatric
surgery is right for you, then you can start your application process.
The process requires completing a short application, providing insurance
information, completing health and diet surveys and submitting a personal
letter of interest. Please call the Lake Huron Bariatric Center at 810-216-1650
to receive the application packet by mail.
Following the completion of your application, a consultation will be scheduled
with one of our Centers of Excellence surgeons to discuss your procedure
and complete your medical history. Any recommendations for pre-operative
testing that will be required will also be made at this time and the tentative
date for your surgery will be scheduled. Following your consultation,
you will meet with members of your care team including our program director,
a dietitian, and an insurance specialist to ensure all of your individual
needs are met.
