Improving Patient Outcomes, One Bariatric Practice At a Time.

Welcome to BariNation: Your Ultimate Practice Partner in Bariatric Success!

Are you a bariatric surgeon or practice seeking to provide additional, exceptional care and support to your patients on their weight loss journey? Look no further! BariNation is here to revolutionize how you approach pre and post-operative patient care. 

At this year's ASMBS Annual Conference, BariNation announced a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Dr. Eric Smith and the Kentucky Bariatric Institute. This ground-breaking collaboration will ensure that patients can access the care and support they need when and where they need it. KBI patients can access an exclusive membership opportunity to connect them with over one hundred live support opportunities a month.  Dr. Smith understands that patients who utilize and participate in a peer-led community are more engaged with his practice, self-report higher levels of success and satisfaction, and have a more positive outlook on their futures.
