Nanticoke Weight Loss & General Surgery will host weight loss seminars at 5:30 p.m. July 5 and 10:30 a.m. July 15 at the Nanticoke Training Center, 121 S. Front St., Seaford.
The free seminars are designed to provide education to individuals considering weight loss surgery to help them make informed decisions on whether surgery is an appropriate option.
Obesity can lead to health problems, including diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea. For those with morbid obesity, having a body mass index of 30 or above, it can also affect organs within the body. Patients are able to bring their BMI down through lifestyles changes under the care of their physician. For others who have not been able to achieve weight loss through these methods, bariatric surgery can be a method to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle.
The weight loss seminars will include educational presentations by Tarek Waked to inform individuals about the benefits of weight loss surgery. Patients and their spouses, family members or friends are welcome to attend. Registration is not required.
