Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Seminar
For many patients, losing weight can be more than just a challenge. When previous weight loss attempts have not succeeded or health problems make it difficult to lose weight, patients have another option: BARIATRIC SURGERY
The Owensboro Health Surgical Weight Loss Center is led by Dr. Ravi Alapati, a board-certified general surgeon with advanced fellowship training in bariatric surgery. Dr. Alapati offers two types of bariatric surgery, which can be performed using minimally invasive techniques. These surgeries are often covered by insurance companies, depending on coverage and the patient’s health.
Owensboro Health hosts seminars each month on this topic, free of charge, where anyone interested in bariatric surgery can learn more. Attendance at these seminars is required as part of the bariatric surgery program.
