Obesity Surgery Seminar
Valley Baptist Medical Center is now offering Obesity surgery, a treatment option for patients who have a serious weight problem and who have failed at other methods of weight loss. 97 million Americans, more than one-third of the adult population, are overweight or obese. An estimated 5 to 10 million of those are considered morbidly obese.
Morbid obesity is typically defined as being 100lbs. or more over ideal body weight, having a Body Mass Index of 40 or higher, or a BMI over 35 with other illnesses such as diabetes or health disease. Morbid obesity brings with it an increased risk for a shorter life expectancy.
For more information on our free education seminars about this weight loss procedure, we invite you to attend a free Obesity Surgery seminar at Valley Baptist Medical Center. At the seminar, you’ll learn about the cost, insurance, risks and outcomes of the surgery. To reserve your place, or for more information, call 1-888-902-LIFE (5433).
