View Obesity and Bariatric Surgery Webcast

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 View Obesity and Bariatric Surgery Webcast. The U.S. Surgeon General estimates that obesity contributes to 112,000 preventable deaths each year. And deaths are only the tip of the obesity iceberg. The medical problems caused by obesity are enormous: coronary disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, stroke, liver disease, gallstones, sleep apnea, and osteoarthritis, just to name a few. For many physicians, the advice to patients is to eat fewer calories and exercise more. But unfortunately, that advice usually just isn’t enough for most patients. On this CME Webcast, we’re going to show you what can work for your patients when diet and exercise don’t work. Joining Dr. Jim Allen in the studio is nurse practitioner and specialist in the medical management of obesity from the Ohio State University Comprehensive Weight Management Program, Kathy Foreman.
