Chichester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 04, 2010 -- The team at Streamline Surgical have further developed their popular seminar programme for prospective obesity surgery patients.
The two hour evening sessions are currently held at the prestigious BMI Clementine Churchill Hospital in Harrow. They feature presentations from one of the surgical team which includes Mr Shaw Somers and Mr Guy Slater, well known through the Discovery Home & Health Fat Doctor series. They are supported by a specialist bariatric nurse and previous patients who are able to offer first hand experience of life after gastric band or gastric bypass surgery. After the presentation there is ample time to ask questions and speak individually to the experts available.
2010 will see the launch of the first Central London seminar which will become a regular fixture on the seminar programme. The central London seminar has been arranged to meet the needs of people without private transport or those who simply prefer a location convenient for workplace or major transport links. The new series of seminars will also feature an appearance by a celebrity speaker who will share their experience of weight loss surgery.
In addition to the Central London location, seminars will also be launched in Surrey and continue to run in Harrow at the BMI Clementine Churchill Hospital. The Streamline Surgical team are hoping that this increased programme will meet the high demand for places.
Alec (48) attended a recent Streamline Surgical seminar with Shaw Somers. He comments:
âMy wife heard about the seminars offered by Streamline Surgical and booked without asking me first. I was a bit annoyed as I had already had a consultation elsewhere and had felt under a lot of pressure from that company to book in for surgery and pay a deposit at the seminar.â He continued, âI went along to hear what Streamline Surgical had to say and it couldnât have been more different. The seminar was free of charge to attend and it was up to me whether or not I participated in questions. The information presented by the surgeon was extremely helpful and I was really impressed with the previous patients who spoke at the seminar as they were very honest about their experiences.â
Jane (34) attended a recent Streamline Surgical seminar with Guy Slater. She comments:
âI cringe every time I hear the term morbid obesity. Iâm still young and want to start a family but I have polycystic ovaries which makes it hard to conceive. I decided to attend one of the Streamline Surgical seminars as I had reached a point at which I knew I had to start doing something about my weight. Guy Slater was the surgeon speaking at the seminar I attended and I was really impressed with everything he had to say, he was genuinely caring and compassionate. When he talked about the gastric bypass procedure I knew it was the way forward for me.
The seminar gave me so much information and access to experts that I was able to leave the seminar with everything I needed to make an informed decision about weight loss surgery. Following the seminar I booked a consultation and then made the decision to have surgery. I had the gastric bypass done via keyhole surgery 6 weeks later and I have already lost 3 stones in 11 weeks!â
