Fast Track Process

ee-new-JayFor patients who plan on paying cash for their procedure, have already been approved for weight loss surgery by their insurance company, or have begun the process with another surgeon and have already completed some of the necessary steps,  we can help expedite the surgical process. Call us today at 901-881-0600 to get started.

Here are the steps:

  • Call us at 901-881-0600.
  • Attend one of our informational seminars to learn more about our program and the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.  If you have already been to a seminar, or have started this process in the past, we may be able to skip that step and just send you a new application.
  • A patient advocate and program coordinator will review all of your previous documentation along with your application in order to determine a course of action for you.
  • Surgery scheduling still relies on the timing of your insurance approval and some pre-op testing, but we will get you the earliest surgery date possible.
