  • (1888PressRelease) August 05, 2016 - An estimated 71% of Americans are either obese or overweight with 75% of men and 67% of women falling into one or the other category. The multi-billion dollar diet industry continues to grow unabated, yet so many of these programs fail, leaving dieters frustrated and desperate, not to mention being more prone to a host of life-threatening health implications like stroke, diabetes and heart disease.

    So what are the latest tools in the arsenal against obesity? If traditional dieting has failed, what alternatives exist? To explore the latest options, West Medical is holding a series of free seminars. Among the topics covered is the new FDA approved gastric balloon. This minimally invasive procedure, that takes only minutes to perform, involves inserting a balloon into the stomach that is then filled with saline.

    Because it fills the volume, patients feel fuller faster and the pounds drop. This is but one of many tools that will be addressed at the seminars that will be held at 9900 Stockdale Hwy, Bakersfield that are scheduled for:
    Saturday, August 6, 2016/ 11 a.m.
    Saturday, August 20, 2016 / 11 a.m.
    Wednesday, August 31, 2016 / 10 a.m.

    "Our phone lines are flooded with calls everyday asking questions about the various procedures, which one may be right for them, their efficacy, etc.," said board-certified bariatric surgeon Hooman Shabatian, M.D., founder and medical director of West Medical. "Our advice is for those interested in losing weight to follow a proper diet and exercise regimen. Only after these measures have failed should one consider other options as we know that carrying excess weight can lead to a myriad of adverse health conditions like heart attack, stroke and diabetes."

    West Medical has emerged as Southern California's leading weight loss medical practice whose team of physicians are adept at performing a range of state-of-the-art procedures.
