It's time to make a change.
If you are at least 100 pounds or more overweight, losing weight is not just a good idea - it is a medical necessity. Every week you wait and every pound you gain adds an increasing risk to your health and life. Severe obesity is difficult to treat with traditional diet and exercise. It often requires medical help to find the best, healthiest way to take off a significant amount of weight. When you're ready for a change, Dr. Steven M. Clark and the team of bariatric specialists at Community Bariatric Services - South can help you understand your bariatric surgery options.
We offer free surgical weight loss information seminars for individuals interested in learning more about bariatric surgery. This class reviews the anatomy of the surgery, the diet plan, and the lifestyle changes that are to be expected after weight loss surgery. It is also a forum for individuals to ask questions about bariatric surgery. The sessions are presented by members of the bariatric clinic team.
How to register: See below for dates and details, and then register online or call 317-887-7771 or toll-free 800-777-7775 to sign up.
Our program, based at Community Hospital South in Indianapolis, Indiana, pulls together an impressive group of professionals to help you make informed choices. If bariatric surgery is the right path for you, we will give you extensive support before and after surgery so you can be successful. If bariatric surgery is not a good option for you, we can direct you to the resources and experts you need for other medical weight loss solutions.
Through our team approach, we can help you shed and keep off meaningful amounts of weight. Our skilled bariatric/general surgeon and nurses work closely with a psychologist trained in eating and weight-related issues, and a full program support team that includes a physician assistant and dietitian. Together, our team can help you achieve your lifestyle and weight loss goals and help you get back to a healthier and happier you!
