Surgical Weight Loss Program for Teens

  • Contact / Refer

    The Surgical Weight Loss Program for Teens at Cincinnati Children’s requires a completed copy of our SWLPT referral form signed by the child’s primary care or specialty healthcare provider. It’s important that this referral specifically include the child’s current weight, height and the doctor’s assessment of medical, physical or mental health problems that the overweight condition may have caused. We would also like for the doctor to include the child’s:

    • General medical history
    • Prior treatments
    • Results of testing and weight loss attempts, including dieting records, that may be relevant to the overweight condition

    Once this information is received by our office, the family will get a questionnaire to complete and return, along with a signed medical record release form and copy of the patient’s insurance card.

    Referrals

    To refer patients for bariatric surgery, please complete and submit our referral form.
