Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery Pre-Op Education

Norwalk Hospital
Weight loss

Wouldn't it be a great feeling and sense of security approaching weight loss surgery without exhibiting fears of the unknown? Where will I be? What will happen to me? What is the procedure upon my arrival for surgery? Where do I go after surgery?

Barbara Whelan (Vala), a seasoned registered nurse, member of the Hospital staff for many years and the Bariatric Coordinator for the Hospital's Surgical Weight Loss Center of Excellence program, answers all of these questions and many others in her monthly Weight Loss Surgery Pre-Op classes. She promises that you won't leave the class without having a clear understanding of what you will be experiencing throughout the entire process of your surgery and where in Norwalk Hospital you will be at various times during your stay. 

Classes are offered every month on the 1st Tuesday at 6:15PM or the 3rd Wednesday at 1:00PM. 

Please contact Barbara Whelan (Vala) @ 203-852-3100 for more information and to register.
