WMCHC announces Honesdale Bariatrics
HONESDALE, PA — Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers has announced the establishment of Honesdale Bariatrics, a weight-loss program offered by Honesdale Surgical Associates and Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers. Both non-surgical and surgical procedures will be performed at Wayne Memorial Hospital by experienced weight-loss surgeons Lisa Medvetz, MD, FACS and Yiang (Sean) Yuan, MD, FACS.
Honesdale Bariatrics will offer vertical sleeve gastrectomy, AspireAssist, intra-gastric balloon insertion, gastric bypass and duodenal switch, revisions of bariatric procedures and non-surgical protocols. Dr. Medvetz and Dr. Yuan will also oversee management of complications related to bariatric procedures.
The bariatric program was prompted by a free weight loss seminar presented by Dr. Medvetz at Wayne Memorial Hospital last fall, which drew close to 75 attendees. Dr. Medvetz will hold a second free weight-loss seminar on Wednesday, February 7, at 6 p.m. at Wayne Memorial Hospital. All are welcome, but an RSVP is appreciated; email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information call 570/253-8635.
