Free Surgical Weight Loss Information Session on December 6 in Concord


Sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough. If you are considering surgical weight loss, the first step is to become educated about the different procedures, what to expect and how to live a long, healthy, energetic life. The Emerson Hospital Center for Weight Loss will host a free surgical weight loss information session on Wednesday, December 6 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at Emerson Hospital, in the Cheney Conference Room near the main entrance of the hospital at 133 Old Road to Nine Acre Corner, Concord.

During the info session, Emerson’s weight loss surgeons will provide an overview of the program, describe each type of weight loss surgery, and answer questions. Emerson’s surgical weight loss team has performed hundreds of laparoscopic weight loss surgeries with positive, long-term results. The surgeons at Emerson’s Center for Weight Loss are bariatric surgeons, specifically trained in performing weight loss surgeries. 

The Center is accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program.  This comprehensive accreditation acknowledges the Center’s multidisciplinary team and high-quality care provided.   The Center has experienced and empathetic staff who are with patients every step of their weight loss journey to answer questions, address concerns and plan for continued success. 

Attendees will receive information on who is a candidate for surgery, the results prospective patients can expect, and how support, counseling and education can help achieve long-term weight loss.  Validated free parking will be available to attendees.
