In conjunction with its bariatric surgery weight loss program, McLaren Northern Michigan is offering a free bariatric surgery seminar in St. Ignace.
Because one size or procedure does not fit all patients, several new weight loss options will be the focus of the presentation, titled “Bariatric Surgery and Obesity: What are my choices?” The seminar will take place from 6 - 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5 at the St. Ignace Library, located at 110 W. Spruce Street in St. Ignace.
The benefits of bariatric surgery far outweigh the risks associated with obesity including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and several cancers. In fact, bariatric surgery is the only significant option that actually cures diabetes. Studies are showing that bariatric surgery saves lives, improves overall health and well-being, and saves money.
The free seminars will include discussion on the new surgical weight loss options available through McLaren Northern Michigan, as well as surgical qualifications and the multi-disciplinary approach solely focused on the best outcome for each individual patient.
Pre-registration is required. Register by calling 877.568.5598 or northernhealth.org/CREG.
