Inverness Surgical Associates is offering a series of free weight loss seminars at their office, located at 403 W Highland Blvd in Inverness. The informative lectures are planned for July 19, September 20 and November 15, 2018.

“Redefining Your Health Through Weight Loss Surgery” will feature a presentation from general surgeon Dr. Parth Patel. The seminar will give a general overview of obesity and weight loss options, including the process to become a candidate for surgical weight loss.

Obesity is the excess accumulation of body fat, to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health. It can lead to reduced life expectancy and increased health conditions such as certain types of cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, acid reflux, sleep apnea and type II diabetes.

Anyone interested in learning more about surgical weight loss options is welcome to attend. An RSVP is not required but encouraged by calling (352) 637-3337 or visiting
