For Patients

Thinking about a weight loss program and wondering how to get started? St. Vincent Physician Network-Weight Management provides choices: a medical/non-surgical weight loss program, gastric bypass surgery, the LAP BAND® system and gastric sleeve surgery. We encourage you to take time to discuss your options with our team of experienced weight management physicians and staff on the treatment option best suited to you. Getting started is the first step to successful, long term weight management.

Getting Started, Consider the Options
Patients who participate in our medical/non-surgical Weight Management are given an assessment physical to determine physical readiness for a weight loss program, ongoing support from the clinic staff and submit your claim to your insurance company. We want you to be successful, and we are here to help.

Considering gastric surgery or the LAP BAND system? The first step is to attend one of our free informational seminars. Call Weight Management at 406-237-4580 and they will register you for a seminar on a day that works for you.

The seminars are offered once or twice a month at our Billings locations, 2900 12th Ave. N., Suite 160 W., or at Mansfield Center (please check with us for current seminar location). You may also attend a seminar via teleconference at selected locations.

Because we want you to be as informed as possible, attending the seminar is the required first step in the surgical weight loss program.
