St. Mary Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Team announces upcoming bariatric information session

This event is set for Dec. 4 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.

“The information session teaches patients about the several different aspects of bariatric surgery at St. Mary,” said Keith A. Kreitz, M.D., the program’s medical director and a board-certified bariatric surgeon. “While mandatory for all prospective bariatric patients, the session informs patients about the different procedures, who qualifies for the surgery and the nutritional aspect.”

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 on Wednesday, Dec. 4, from 6 to 7 p.m., 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 find out more about the information sessions, or to learn more about St. Mary’s Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Program, call 215-710-5711 or visit stmaryhealthcare.org/bariatrics
