WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY ON DEMAND WEBINAR
By attending a live seminar, you will meet our surgeons and get a more
comprehensive understanding of bariatric surgery. But if you cannot attend
in person, you may watch our online webinar. If you should have any questions
upon completion of the video please contact our Bariatric Coordinator

You can log in from the comfort of your own home or office and participate
in this session. During this 45-minute presentation, Florida's most
experienced weight-loss surgeon - Dr. Robert T. Marema - will explain
in great detail the surgical weight loss options available today. At the
end of the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to post questions
via a "chat feature" and Dr. Marema will answer as many as time
allows. You do not need to download any software to participate. Upon
registration, you will receive a link via email to the webinar site.
During our educational programs, we will give you all the information needed
to help you decide whether weight loss surgery is right for you. We will
highlight the health risks of obesity, including diabetes, heart disease,
high blood pressure, respiratory complications and arthritis. You will
see a visual presentation that clearly explains the types of bariatric
surgery offered at the Flagler Bariatric Surgery Center, including gastric
bypass, adjustable gastric banding and the sleeve gastrectomy procedure,
to help you determine which weight loss surgery best suits your needs.
