GVMH now offering Weight Loss Surgery
Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare has expanded surgery services to include Weight Loss Surgery. Dr. Brent Bell, who joined the GVMH team last fall, will be providing patient education and performing the surgeries. Two seminars will be held for the public to offer information and give patients a better understanding of the Weight Loss Surgery process. The seminars will be held on Wednesday, February, 12 and Wednesday, February 26 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the GVMH Medical Plaza Classroom.
More than one third of adults in the United States are overweight, and morbid obesity rates are on the rise. Dr. Bell, General Surgeon, will perform Gastric Sleeve and Gastric Bypass surgeries. In addition, Dr. Bell will see patients who have a Gastric Band (Lap Band) who need adjustments and will also offer selected types of bariatric surgery revision. The Bariatric Team at GVMH will work with patients to find the surgery that is right for them and will provide support and education to promote long term success.
