Several years ago, FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital partnered with Pinehurst Surgical to establish a comprehensive bariatric surgical program for the mid-Carolinas. The program offers Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and adjustable gastric band surgical approaches to significant weight loss and maintenance for those suffering from morbid obesity. The FirstHealth Bariatric Center is staffed by an interdisciplinary team and coordinated by a patient navigator and registered dietitian who provide education and support, before and after surgery.
For more information on the FirstHealth Bariatric program, call (800) 213-3284, or register for one of our FREE information sessions online here.
