Attend an Informational Session
The first step in Mercy's bariatric surgery process is to attend a free informational session.
Sessions are held at one of two locations, unless otherwise noted by date:
Mercy Medical Center–West Lakes
Cownie Conference Room
1755 59th Place, West Des Moines, IA 50266
YMCA Healthy Living Center™
Conference Room 4
12493 University Ave., Clive, IA 50325
To register, please call (515) 358-9400.
*Reminder: Due to the content that is covered, the doors close on time and you will not be allowed in after the program has started.
At the conclusion of the informational sessions, you will be required to complete an attendance verification if you are still interested in bariatric surgery. When you turn that form in you will receive an in-depth questionnaire to complete.
