Weight Loss Surgery Conference Spotlights Post-Op Support

Post-operative care for weight loss surgery patients is a hot topic at the 26th annual conference of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.  Go behind the scenes with Craig Thompson, founder of the Weight Loss Surgery Channel, Yvonne McCarthy (BariatricGirl.com) and Chef Dave as they highlight innovative products for patients and other happenings at the event.

Weight-Loss-Surgery-Channel-at-ASMBSWhen the bariatric surgeons, nutritionists and patient coordinators leave the educational courses and meetings at the 26th annual conference of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), they head to the exhibit hall. But while several exhibits showcase medical technologies geared toward improving the safety and effectiveness of bariatric surgery procedures, still others primarily are aimed at helping patients after their surgery.

The conference is currently underway at the Gaylord Resort & Hotel in Grapevine, Texas. And, from the number of exhibitors offering products and services for post-operative care, it’s easy to see that surgeons and allied healthcare professionals are focused on helping the patient succeed in every way possible. Craig Thompson, president of the Weight Loss Surgery Channel, Yvonne McCarthy, host of WLS Journeys, and bariatric cooking expert Chef Dave discuss some of the most interesting finds, from tasty chewable vitamin supplements to innovative pain pumps, in this special report straight from the exhibit hall floor.

    Wow…what an awesome week! Thank you Craig and Leslie for inviting me to be a part of the WLS Channel!!

    And Debra, you are TOO FUNNY! I should have loaded up some iron for you. There is a new iron product coming out from Bariatric Advantage that will blow you away. It’s so good that you’ll want to just eat them.

    Beth and Laura…would have been even more fun if you guys had been there!

    Had surgery about 6 yrs. ago and I would do it again if I had to. Dr. Cacucci was great and the cenetr is wonderful and the most caring nurses I have ever met. I had a roux en y. Have lost 125 lbs and still want to loose another 20. Flatuence is sometimes a big problem but you are what you eat and if you eat to much carbs especially bread you will have gas. Feeling great and like giving away my clothes and getting new ones. Went from a 32 to a 14 so far.I’m 62 years old wished I hadn’t had waited so long.
