Morbid obesity is a life-threatening disease that affects over 15 million people in the United States.  A landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that bariatric surgery improved or resolved type-2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and high cholesterol in the vast majority of morbidly obese patients. Most patients had lost 55 to 70 percent of their excess weight one year after bariatric surgery.

The January seminar will take place Monday, January 28 at the same location. To register for these free seminars or to get more information about The Center for Surgical Weight Loss at Lake Norman, call 1-888-99LNRMC or visit www.lnrmcsurgicalweightloss.com
