Extra weight can lead to a number of health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, joint pain and increased risk of cancer. Fortunately, Fairview Health Services offers a number of weight loss options to help each patient achieve his or her goal.
On Sept. 12, Fairview Lakes Medical Center in Wyoming will offer a free weight loss surgery information session for community members who wish to learn more about surgical options.
The session will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Fairview Lakes, 5200 Fairview Blvd., Wyoming. Paul Benn, MD, of Fairview Surgical Consultants, will lead the class and answer any questions that participants may have about bariatric surgery.
Though long-term weight loss requires lifelong commitment, Fairview works to support and encourage its patients along the way.
Registration is required prior to attendance. Participants can register at www.fairview.org/betterhealth or call 952-915-8626.
