Outreach & Education
Get educated and (better yet!) involved in the treatment of the most common general surgical diseases.
The Obesity Action Coalition helps link patients and providers with policymakers, insurance commissioners and legislators to help improve access to care for medical and surgical treatments for obesity. Patients interested in advocating for better insurance coverage of bariatric therapies can get involved here.
I currently perform bariatric surgery and weight loss counseling through the West Jefferson Medical Center in Marrero, Louisiana - one of HealthGrades' Top 250 Hospitals in the country for 2019! Get more information or register for a seminar here.
