The Center for Weight Loss and Surgery at Oswego Health is holding free informational seminars at the Central Square and Fulton Medical Centers, as well as offering one on a Saturday in Oswego.
The Central Square seminar will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. on January 17th, while the Fulton event will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. on January 24th. In addition a noon seminar will be held on Saturday, February 10th in Oswego.
The seminars are open to community members who want to learn how Oswego Health’s new bariatric program can lead them on a successful weight-loss journey.
Providing care are Jeffrey DeSimone, MD, and Kenneth Cooper, DO, who are affiliated with Central New York Surgical Physicians, PC. The physicians perform nearly 450 bariatric surgeries each year and have brought their expertise to Oswego Hospital.
Oswego Health’s comprehensive and personalized bariatric program begins with a screening process and physician-led education sessions to assist community members in being successful. The bariatrics staff will remain a part of each patient’s weight-loss team throughout their journey, from that initial screening and educational session to surgery and follow-up support groups. Along with the two physicians, the bariatric team includes a registered nurse, a psychologist, and a dietician, among others.
The two physicians will perform procedures in Oswego Hospital’s state-of-the-art surgery center. The surgery center has all the latest equipment and is staffed by highly skilled nurses and other clinicians.
The physicians hold free seminars each Wednesday. To learn more information about the free seminar or the program, please visit oswegohealth.org/seminar or call 315-349-5582.
