Western Surgical Bariatric Center offers a unique setup for our out-of state patients without office visits prior to scheduling your surgery. The process includes a telephone consultation with Dr. Weaver and one with the nutritionist. We require our out-of state patients to stay a total of three nights (the night of the pre-op, the night of surgery and one additional night if possible).

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water before and during your stay in Colorado.
