Citrus Memorial is offering a free weight loss seminar on Tuesday, March 19 at 6 p.m. at the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation YMCA in Lecanto.
“Is Weight Loss Surgery the Answer for You?” 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 a robotic-assisted gastric sleeve procedure.
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.
