Getting Started

Acadiana Weight Loss Surgery hosts free Weight Loss Surgery Seminars for individuals considering bariatric surgery as a treatment for obesity.

The seminar lasts approximately one hour and is hosted by Lafayette General Medical Center. During the first hour, the surgeon details all aspects of bariatric surgery – the rationale for surgery, how it is done, and expected outcomes. After the surgeon lecture, attendees will participate in an open-forum, question and answer session with the surgeon and patients who have undergone bariatric surgery by Dr Gachassin and Dr. Eschete. Anyone interested in attending a Seminar is invited and encouraged to bring interested family and friends to share in the learning experience.
