St. Mary to host bariatric surgery information session

Learn more about surgical options for weight loss on Aug. 7 in Langhorne

The St. Mary Medical Center Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Program has announced its next information session for people interested in learning more about surgical options and finding out if bariatric surgery is the right choice for them.

“Bariatric weight loss surgery information sessions help patients live a healthy life,” said Keith A. Kreitz, M.D., the program’s medical director and a board-certified bariatric surgeon. “While mandatory for all prospective patients, the informational session explains the different procedures performed at St. Mary, describes the ideal candidates for surgery and reviews the nutritional aspects of our program.”

Kreitz added that the information sessions often help people develop a better understanding of what life will be like before, during and after the transformative surgery.

The information session will meet from 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 7, in the Medical Staff Office Conference Room at St. Mary Medical Center, located at 1201 Langhorne-Newtown Road, Langhorne. The conference room is located on the first floor by the parking garage at the rear of the St. Mary campus.

The bariatric information session is free of charge, but registration is required as seating is limited. To learn more, call 215-710-5711 or visit
