Archbold Hosts Health Talk on Weight Loss Surgery

Saturday, May 12, 2012

There are many reasons people struggle with losing weight—lack of nutrition and exercise knowledge, the absence of an essential, strong support system or just not knowing even how to begin.

The Archbold Bariatric Weight Loss Program offers a comprehensive, individualized range of weight loss services, including a weight loss surgery component, commonly referred to as Lap-Band® or bariatric surgery.

Archbold’s unique, comprehensive program is designed to help patients achieve their weight loss goals, improve their overall health and enhance their quality of life. The Program’s nutritional components and unique support system help patients stay positive, focused and motivated.

As part of Archbold Memorial Hospital’s continuing Health Talk free community lecture series, general surgeon Greg Patterson, MD, will present, “The Archbold Bariatric Weight Loss Program, featuring Lap-Band® Surgery” on Tuesday, May 15, 2012.

Dr. Patterson will discuss obesity related health conditions and medical weight loss options available to help patients achieve their health goals—including Lap-Band surgery. Patterson will discuss weight loss surgery, the medical criteria essential for a patient to qualify for surgery and the strong support system available to patients before and after the procedure.

Dr. Patterson is board certified in general surgery and performs Lap-Band surgery at Archbold Memorial Hospital. To learn more about weight loss options, including Lap-Band surgery, please attend this Health Talk. The lecture will begin at 6 p.m. and be held in the East Tower Classroom at Archbold Memorial Hospital. Dinner will be served. Pre-registration is requested; call 229-227-5140 or click here.
