The Center for Healthy Weight at Southern Regional Medical Center has launched an online weight loss seminar for individuals interested in finding out more about weight loss and surgical options. The online video seminar, which is less than 20 minutes, provides individuals the opportunity to gain an overview of the center’s bariatric services in the comfort of their own home.

The seminar provides the foundational information for individuals to understand weight loss surgery, consider their own weight loss goals and, most importantly, to reflect and consider their own biggest obstacles to losing or maintaining a healthy weight. It offers the insight needed to think about one’s own weight loss golals and make an informed decision that best fits their individual needs.

The center, which is on the Terrace Level of The Women’s Center at Southern Regional, offers a 360 Degree of Care model with each patient receiving personalized care and treatment from a dedicated team with expertise in weight loss management. The team – surgeons, care coordinator, and dietitian – play a special role in creating a unique program that walks the patient through every step of the process, from pre-assessment to post-operative care. Karleena Tuggle, MD, bariatric surgeon and board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, is the Medical Director for the center.
