By Christian Meagher on 1/25/2022

Griffin Bariatrics will offer free virtual presentations on weight-loss services on Tues., Jan. 25 at noon.; Mon., Feb. 7 at 5:30 p.m.; Wed., Feb. 16 at 5:30 p.m.; and Tues., Feb. 22 at noon.

Led by Griffin Hospital Director of Bariatrics Dr. Abe Fridman, these seminars will explain how bariatric surgery can help patients lose significant amounts of weight, enhance their health, and provide long-term outcomes. Additionally, techniques, support programs, pre- and post-operative expectations, and insurance questions are also discussed.

Griffin Hospital established its comprehensive weight loss surgery program, Griffin Bariatrics, to provide a medical solution for patients with more substantial weight loss needs. The long-term success enjoyed by Griffin Bariatrics patients is a result of excellent medical care, including the latest minimally invasive surgical procedures, combined with access to a full range of multidisciplinary services that have been assembled to support them before, during, and after their surgery.

To register, contact Bariatric Care Specialist Kimberly Fisher at kfisher@griffinhealth.org or 203-732-7108. For more information about Griffin Bariatrics, visit griffinhospitalbariatrics.com.
