Marina Del Rey, CA (PressExposure) January 30, 2013 -- LA Bariatric Surgeon, Dr. Jeremy Korman, has long been known for the commitment he demonstrates to each of his patients - even after they reach their weight loss goals. Once again showing the importance of ongoing support, Dr. Korman recently teamed up with several patients to run the Los Angeles Rock n' Roll Half Marathon. Dr. Korman took a moment to speak on this milestone event.
"It was such a privilege to run alongside my patients in this year's half marathon," explains Dr. Korman. "It was an opportunity not only to celebrate their ongoing successes, but to show them just how far they've actually come." Dr. Korman practices at LA Bariatric Center in Marina Del Rey.
"The transformations we've seen in our patients have been absolutely inspiring," reports Dr. Korman. "The fact that folks who were once struggling with mobility can now run over 13 miles is nothing short of amazing." As one of the area's top weight loss facilities, LA Bariatric Center offers many of today's top gastric procedures, including LAP-BAND®, Lap Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve procedures.
Asked to speak on LA Bariatric Center's continued popularity, Dr. Korman offered this: "To a great extent, the success of our practice lies in our unique approach. Beyond offering today's most effective weight loss surgeries, we understand the need for comprehensive aftercare, helping patients maintain their results and lead healthier lives in general." The center - which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary - keeps several healthcare professionals on staff, including nurses, a dietician, a clinical social worker and a physical therapist.
Commenting on what this year's marathon meant to his patients and to his practice, Dr. Korman concluded with this: "In many ways, a marathon symbolizes the weight loss journey, itself - the roadblocks patients face and the challenges we help them overcome. With an eye on the finish line and a true spirit of teamwork, our patients know that we're by their side every step of the way."
