Hi guys, Mary back; wishing you a happy New Year! Now of course with New Year’s we always think about resolutions and one of the most popular ones we hear about is weight loss.
I have Dr. Spaniolas here; Chief of Bariatrics here at our hospital to talk to us a little bit more about that.
Mary- thank you for having me, and you’re right, weight loss is a very common goal for a lot of patients starting the year, but I want to emphasize that weight loss, although important on its own is many times, the means to an end; people want to improve their overall health, their comorbidities and live healthier and longer lives. I cannot think of a better way to start the New Year, than starting the process towards that-
Well, we thank you for joining us here today and we look forward to helping you get started!
