Toronto, ON (PRWEB) June 10, 2009
Slimband today announced the launch of a new payment plan that is making weight loss surgery more affordable for Canadians. The plan requires an initial payment of $2,900, followed by affordable monthly payments of $389 over the course of the program.
Slimband understands the financial pressures faced by many people due to the current economic conditions and does not want this to be a stumbling block in achieving long term weight loss success. Slimband Physician's Assistant, Dr. Umar Dar said "I believe this new payment option will make weight loss surgery a viable option to many who had previously overlooked it due to the associated costs. I'm glad that those people will now have the chance to start their weight loss journey and experience long term weight loss success."
Under the new payment plan, patients will continue to have access to Slimband's extensive post-op support program, which is among the most comprehensive in Canada. The 4 year post-op program includes features such as regular in-person and online events, advice and assistance from fitness and nutrition experts, and access to fill adjustments at locations convenient for patients.
