The My Program for Life team will be available to discuss the different aspects of weight loss surgery, including nutrition, health and fitness, lifestyle modification and many health related topics. A medical professional will explain the procedure and process from the initial consultation to post surgical nutrition counseling.

    The seminar features bariatric surgeons that will be available to answer any questions related to weight loss surgery. The My Program for Life bariatric surgery team is led by Doctors Alexander D. Abkin and Nicholas A. Bertha, both were voted Top Docs for NJ Gastric Bypass Surgery, NJ Lap Band Surgery and NJ Bariatric Surgery and have performed more than 4,000 laparoscopic procedures.

    Morbid obesity is a life-threatening disease that affects 15 million people in America.
