Surgical Weight Loss Informational Meeting February 7

Stevens Community Medical Center will be having an informational meeting for individuals who are considering having weight loss surgery. The group is facilitated by ACMC surgeon Ryan Lussenden, M.D. and a registered nurse. There is no cost to attend. The meeting will be in the Adminstration Conference Room (ACR) at SCMC from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, February 7. 

It is always best to lose weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise. But if you are not successful with those techniques and are significantly overweight, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery. Medical professionals are able to advise you about which procedure is the best solution for you. Proper screening, preparation and follow-up care are essential to achieving weight loss goals and maintaining good health following weight loss surgery.

Surgical options for weight loss include: • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy • Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y) After care is also provided for those with a history of Adjustable Gastric Band placement (LapBand.)
