The Mercy Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Wellness Center (http://www.bariatricwellness.com) will be hosting a free healthy dinner and weight-loss surgery seminar on Wednesday, October 14 at 6pm at the McHenry County College Campus located in Crystal Lake, Illinois.
Leslie McClellan, MD, board certified general surgeon specializing in bariatric surgery, will be presenting the latest information about weight loss surgery. Dr. McClellan's education credentials include undergraduate study at Johns Hopkins University. She completed her general surgery residency at the University of Chicago. Dr. McClellan was trained by the former president of the American Society for Bariatric Surgery. She has been practicing bariatric surgery since 1992.
"Morbid obesity is truly a disease and not the fault of the patient," Dr. McClellan says. She understands that people who suffer from this disease are born with the condition and face a life-long struggle. Consulting with her patients before surgery, and maintaining that connection after, is top priority for Dr. McClellan. "Every patient is different and there are a number of different operations. We need to figure out what surgery is best for them." Dr. McClellan also provides extensive post-surgery support for all patients.
Dr. McClellan has been featured as a guest medical expert in the field of bariatric surgery on medical news television shows, PBS and The Learning Channel. Dr. McClellan is truly one of this country's top bariatric surgeons.
Many insurance plans now cover weight-loss surgery.
