July 12, 2011 > Bariatric seminar
Submitted By St. Rose Hospital
According to a recent article released by the New England Journal of Medicine, 90 percent of patients who had weight loss surgery no longer require medications to control hypertension, Type II diabetes and heart disease. Anyone considering weight loss surgery, or wishing to learn about it, is invited to attend a free bariatric seminar at St. Rose Hospital, Hayward, on July 30, 2011.
Bariatric surgeons from First Surgical Consultants will lead the seminar and discuss a variety of surgical options, including Gastric Bypass, Banding and Sleeve Gastrectomy, for weight reduction. Also discussed will be the dangers of obesity and the many health benefits that can be expected after surgery. There will be a question-and-answer session.
This interactive program will provide information about the latest medical technology for weight reduction and information to help determine if surgery is the right alternative.
For more information or to RSVP, call the St. Rose Hospital Education and Training Department at (510) 264-4044.
