Free Seminar Explains Surgical Options for Weight Loss


Obesity is one of the leading causes of unnecessary death in the United States. Behind the statistics are real men and women who struggle daily with the physical and emotional toll of being dangerously obese. 

Surgical procedures for weight loss are not for everyone, but they are dramatically improving the lives of some people. To learn more, plan to attend an informational seminar hosted by Munson Healthcare Manistee Hospital from 6 - 7 p.m. in the hospital’s Education Center Classrooms 1 & 2.

Bariatric surgery expert Roche Featherstone, M.D., FACS, will provide information about the surgical options available at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City and take questions from the audience. Munson Medical Center’s program has been designated a BlueDistinction® Center-Plus for Bariatric Surgery by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.   

There is no charge to attend, but registration is requested. For more information or to register, call 231-935-9265, or visit
