With a bariatric surgery center of excellence located right here in northeastern Indiana, more and more local residents are interested in learning about this nationally recognized provider of surgical weight loss options that’s also close to home.
The Lutheran Health Network Bariatric Center announces two upcoming information sessions:
• Thursday, Sept. 13, noon-1 p.m.
• Thursday, Sept. 20, 7-8 p.m.
Each session takes place in the Lutheran Weight Management Center, which is located at the northeast corner of the Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Wayne, 7970 W. Jefferson Blvd., on the Lutheran Hospital campus. Most sessions last slightly longer than an hour. Call 260-435-7844 for additional information or visit LHNBariatrics.com.
Lutheran Health Network announced late last year that its bariatric center had been approved for renewal as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the Surgical Review Corporation. The ASMBS Center of Excellence designation recognizes surgical programs with a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric surgery. The LHN Bariatric Center was first recognized as an ASMBS Center of Excellence in 2008.
The LHN Bariatric Center offers a comprehensive, medically supervised weight-loss program that serves patients in northeastern Indiana, southern Michigan and northwestern Ohio. The program offers three surgical options:
• Sleeve gastrectomy
• Adjustable gastric band
• Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
