I wanted to share a quick write-up and photo that was posted in the Clarian North associate newsletter last week. As a non-Clarian Bariatrics employee, I can attest that the individuals I work with regularly are all top-notch and a complete joy to work with. I am so happy for them and the new location! On the evening of October 28, more than 60 individuals attended the grand opening of the Clarian Bariatrics outpatient clinic on the northwest side.

Happy Halloween!

10/31/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

When I was a little kid, Halloween was always my favorite holiday, and honestly, it still is! There is something about pumpkin carving, trick-or-treating (even though I don't do it anymore), haunted houses and spooky tales that still appeals to the kid in me. Now that I have a neice and three nephews I love hearing their excitment about what to dress up as and how much candy they hope to gather. One thing I also appreciate is that my sister and brother tell their children that while it is okay…

When you look at a piece of candy and think, “Oh that looks good! One won’t hurt,” you are not contemplating treating yourself, you are contemplating sabotaging yourself. If you really don’t…

Types of Weight Loss Surgery:

10/29/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

Laparoscopic surgery is a less invasive surgical option because it eliminates the need for a long incision to open the abdomen. With this procedure, a small video camera is inserted through small incisions made in the abdominal wall, and the surgeon views the procedure on a video monitor. This helps the surgeon to achieve better visualization. Studies have shown that this type of surgery offers the following benefits:     Less pain.     Easier breathing and increased lung function.…
