Weight-Loss Surgery Information Seminar
Wednesday, October 11, 2017, 06:00pm
Contact :781-306-6166

Every month at either Melrose-Wakefield Hospital or Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford, a surgical information seminar is held for patients who would like to learn more about weight loss surgery. Admission to these meetings is free of charge and everyone is welcome to attend.

During these meetings we review the biology of obesity and the rationale behind surgical intervention in appropriately selected cases. Realities versus expectations regarding the Lap-Band procedure, the Roux-Y gastric bypass and the sleeve gastrectomy will be discussed.

We also review the differences between laparoscopic and open bariatric surgery. Patients, who would be potential candidates for surgery, will have a unique opportunity get an insight into the preparation for surgery, perioperative management and postoperative care. There is absolutely no pressure to proceed with surgery for anyone who attends this meeting. If you decide to proceed with weight loss surgery, then attendance is mandatory. 

Register online. When registering online for this seminar, be sure to choose Lawrence Memorial Hospital and October 11.

Location : Lawrence Memorial Hospital; Johnson Conference Room; 170 Governors Avenue; Medford
Registration required.
