9/8/09: Emerson Hospital offers free surgical weight loss information session in Fitchburg

Join Emerson Hospital for a free informational session on its surgical weight loss program. The session will be held at the Marriott Courtyard Fitchburg on Thursday, September 24, 2009, at 6:00 pm.

Major weight loss is very difficult to achieve alone. That is why Emerson Hospital has introduced a comprehensive approach – laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery and laparoscopic banding – to its program of surgical services.

Learn more about this increasing popular method of weight reduction (for people 100 pounds or more overweight) from Dr. Michael Jiser, who along with the rest of the bariatric surgical team, has performed hundreds of laparoscopic weight loss surgeries with positive, long-term results. Attendees will receive information on who is a candidate for the surgery, what results prospective patients can expect to achieve, and how support, counseling, and education can help achieve long-term weight loss.

For more information, please call 978.287.3532.
