Dr. Provost was a featured presenter at The Faculty Insights program, started by LivLife Hospitals, which is designed to train emerging surgeons in the field of bariatric and laparoscopic surgery. During his presentation, the Dallas bariatric surgeon addressed the growing rate of morbid obesity among Indian and Asian populations and explained that weight loss surgery has proven to be a more effective treatment for clinical obesity as compared to traditional physician-assisted diet and exercise programs. Because Asians are particularly prone to obesity due to their body composition and lifestyle issues, the guideline for the eligibility for surgery has been revised to 27.5 BMI as compared to the NIH standard BMI of 35 in the U.S.
