If you’re considering weight loss surgery, you want to make sure you have your facts straight.
At Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, you can attend Weight Loss Surgery Information sessions that will provide you with some highlights about BIDMC’s bariatric surgery program and reliable information on weight loss surgery. The session includes a comprehensive presentation on the Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band (LAP-BAND®), RNY Gastric Bypass, and Gastric Sleeve procedures by one of the bariatric surgeons.
Dr. Daniel Jones, the Weight Loss Surgery Director at BIDMC, says that informational sessions are a crucial first step for patients to learn about the surgery and (more importantly) decide if it’s right for them.
“Make sure you’re doing it for you,” says Dr. Jones. “You can’t do it for your spouse, you can’t do it for your mom and dad. It has to be at a time and place when you’re ready to do it for yourself and make that commitment.”
Here’s an inside look at a session led by Dr. Jones.
