This is the time of the year when weight, or more specifically how to lose it, is on the minds of many. It is the No. 1 New Year’s Resolution made and probably the No. 1 broken, but then weight loss is a daunting task for most. In many cases, new years come and go and, despite the resolutions, weight tends to appear rather than disappear.
If this is your situation, Walton Living Magazine featured an article by Clearview Regional Medical Center in the last issue of the magazine that may have the answer to your problem. In the article, Emily Russell, director of marketing and business development for Clearview gives details on the Clearview Metabolic Center located at the hospital in Monroe and its bariatric surgery program. As the medical provider for Walton County, Clearview Regional Medical Center established a comprehensive weight management program in 2016, opening the metabolic center in January last year. It offers a wide range of weight management solutions and approaches under General Surgeon, Donald Maynard, MD, who is the medical director at Clearview Metabolic Center.
“As a team, we are excited about bringing this comprehensive program to our community to promote wellness,” Maynard said. “Our hope is that people will take advantage of the opportunity to get more information about the different options and make an informed decision with their medical provider about the best approach of treatment.”
