There is a tremendous need for surgeons to incorporate a medical weight loss program into their surgical program to assist with preoperative and postoperative weight loss.

Robard Corporation, a leading provider of weight loss programs and products, offers a wealth of tools and education opportunities to arm weight management professionals with the knowledge and skills to grow their business, including continuing education credits and webcasts featuring leading experts in the field of obesity management.

On Thursday, February 21, 2013, from 1:00pm—1:45pm (EST), Dr. Troy Schumann will be the featured presenter for the latest broadcast of Robard’s free webcast series. Dr. Schumann, Medical Director of the St. Elizabeth Weight Management Center in Florence, Kentucky, will present a live webcast to discuss the importance of incorporating a medical weight loss program into a bariatric surgical program.

The substantial increases in obesity and bariatric surgery have led health insurance companies to mandate 5–10% pre-operative weight loss and attendance at multiple nutritionist consultations. As a result, there is a tremendous need for surgeons to incorporate a medical weight loss program into their surgical program to assist with preoperative and postoperative weight loss.

To that end, Dr. Schumann will address this subject and review the following topics during this upcoming webcast event:

  • Understanding the importance of preoperative weight loss
  • Identifying the best time to start postoperatively and why
  • Evaluating the risk of “too much, too soon”
