Joining us this week for Martha Jefferson Healthwise is bariatric
coordinator, Lisa Slate, with insights about who makes a good candidate for Bariatric Surgery.
Lisa discussed what makes a person a good candidate for bariatric surgery and what a person can expect after surgery. She also talked about how a person who has gone through bariatric surgery can ensure successfully results.
