Bariatric Weight Loss Program Health Talk topic

THOMASVILLE — Weight loss and improving overall health are among the top New Year’s resolutions every year.  And every year, studies show that more than half Americans will go on some sort of diet to lose weight.

 But unfortunately, many will break their resolution for multiple reasons — lack of nutrition and exercise knowledge, the absence of an essential, strong support system or just not knowing even how to begin are on the list.

 General and bariatric surgeon John Cascone, MD, said Archbold’s Bariatric Weight Loss Program has proven to be an effective tool for patients, who despite multiple attempts to lose weight, have been unsuccessful.

 The Archbold Bariatric Weight Loss Program offers individualized weight loss services, including a surgical component commonly referred to as Lap-Band® or bariatric surgery. The program is designed to help patients achieve their weight loss goals, improve their overall health and enhance their quality of life.

  “We’ve seen dramatic results from patients,” said Cascone. “Not only do they feel better and have more energy, a number of them have completely come off their medications for diabetes, hypertension and acid reflux. Weight loss surgery has really transformed the lives of many in our community, since Archbold’s program began less than two years ago.”
