Bariatric Medical Director Dr. David J. Lee, and Dr. Adam A. Golas, at Southern Indiana Surgery will hold free information sessions for those wanting to learn more about obesity and bariatric surgery.
The patient information session will be held via a telehealth platform. The sessions are scheduled on the following dates:
- Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at 5:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, June 23, 2020 at 5:30 p.m.
According to Dr. Lee, the session will cover the causes of obesity, trends and quality of life issues. The session will also explore misconceptions about bariatric surgery, lifestyle implications, insurance coverage and surgery options including sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
To qualify for bariatric surgery, patients must have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 35 and have significant weight-related conditions; or have a BMI over 40 without weight-related conditions. Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the treatment of obesity. Bariatric surgery is more than weight-loss surgery; it is a lifestyle change for overweight patients to improve their quality of life.
