Free Seminars on Weight-Loss Surgery
Mercy Medical Center holds seminars throughout the year for those interested in knowing more about LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Band and gastric bypass surgeries. Attending one of our free seminars is a great way to learn more about the services we offer and to find out if you are a good candidate for surgery. During the seminar, we review in detail our specific treatments, as well as the background and experience of our doctors.
The Patient Education sessions are held at the DeMatteis Center in Greenvale, NY (see travel directions below) on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. followed by a Bariatric Surgery Patient Support Group meeting at 7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Attendees at the Patient Education and Support Group meetings do not have to be Mercy Medical Center patients—friends and family members are also welcome to attend.
The support groups offer patients the opportunity to speak with bariatric surgeons and hear from other patients first-hand about their experiences. Information regarding Mercy's bariatric surgery program is available by calling (516) 62-MERCY. For your convenience, you can register on line for one of our seminars at www.stopobesityforlife.com.
