Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) September 03, 2008 -- Global MD, Incâs Amanda Hayes-Kibreab, Esq. attended Obesity Helps National Event for pre- and post-bariatric surgery patients in Sacramento, Califonria over the weekend. At the conference, Ms. Hayes-Kibreab provided several free consultations on medical tourism to patients looking for bariatric, cosmetic and orthopedic surgery. During those consultations, Ms. Hayes-Kibreab discussed the advantages and risks of medical travel with interested patients. Interested patients received Global MDâs Free Guide to Medical Travel explaining the medical travel process and what patients who are considering medical treatment abroad should know.
Pre- and post-bariatric surgery patients are increasingly turning to cost effective alternatives for care after weight loss. For example, many formerly obese patients need reconstructive cosmetic surgery that is not covered by health insurance. Others need orthopedic surgeries that come with large insurance co-payments. Financial obstacles often get between formerly obese patients and their goal of getting their body and their life back to normal.
On Saturday, Global MD offered these patients a treatment alternative. With a network of elite international medical institutions in Asia and Latin America, Global MD consulted with patients about their options for surgery abroad.
