MEETING YOUR WEIGHT-LOSS GOALS IN 2012
If your goal is to lose weight in 2012, now is the time to get started. If you would rather be "The Biggest Loser" than watch it on TV, your first step is to attend a free lecture on your surgical weight-loss options, presented by Dr. Julie Ellner, one of the leading bariatric surgeons and the medical director of the Alvarado Surgical Weight-Loss Program. Patients travel from around the country to have her perform their bariatric surgery.
"Every year, patients make a commitment at the beginning of the year, so this is an excellent time to see if you are a candiate, what procedure is right for you and your insurance or other payment options," said Dr. Ellner.
"The expertise, credibility and commitment of the surgeon whom you choose to perform your gastric bypass or banding surgery directly impacts your success and your survival," Dr. Ellner continued. "Thankfully, I find that most of my patients have spent countless days, weeks and months educating themselves before making their choice. I feel that when a patient spends that much time making the decision to place their trust in a specific surgeon, they should know exactly what they’re getting for their investment. After all, obesity is a lifetime disease and the surgery doesn’t cure it, it only provides a tool that helps the patient keep it under control. Your surgeon is your partner in your success."
If you would like to start on your road to health and weight loss, attend the next educational seminar on Thursday, Feb. 16, at Alvarado Hospital. Parking is free in the hospital parking structure. To register, click here or call 1-800-258-2723. Light refreshments are served.
