Referring to Bariatric Surgery

Health Provider Referrals and Consultations

Michigan Medicine physicians can refer patients to the Michigan Medicine Bariatric Surgery Program through MiChart (search “bariatric surgery”).

Review the evaluation and eligibility requirements before referring patients.

Health providers can also call M-LINE and ask to speak to a Michigan Medicine bariatric surgeon: 800-962-3555.

Patient Outcomes Calculator

The Michigan Bariatric Surgery Collaborative (MBSC) has developed a Bariatric Surgery Outcomes Calculator that can predict a patient’s weight loss, comorbidity resolution, and complication rate after bariatric surgery. Many patients and providers find this resource useful when considering bariatric surgery. Access through a desktop browser or download the app below.
