A note from Dr. David J. Lourié, MD, medical director, bariatrics program
"Huntington Hospital’s bariatric program offers so much for
our patients, from expert staff to the best facilities and techniques.
In addition, I'm proud that we offer critical support in the months
leading up to your surgery; educational resources that will help you decide
if this life-altering decision is the right one for you, and a support
group to help you on the journey.
If you are considering bariatric surgery, I encourage you to attend our
Bariatric Symposium and learn more about the support we provide, every
step of the way."
