Bariatric Surgeon of Excellence to Speak in Port Charlotte
Dr. Joseph Chebli to give 2-hour seminar on Bariatric Surgery at 24TwentyOne Event Center
Venice, FL, April 11, 2017 – Venice Regional Bayfront Health is hosting a Bariatric Surgical Services Informational Seminar with Joseph Chebli, M.D., FACS, FASMBS, Bariatric Surgeon of Excellence, on Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. – noon. The program will be held at the 24TwentyOne Event Center located at 2421 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte. Attendees will learn about medical, bariatric and surgical options, surgery criteria and detailed information about the next steps.
“There is no procedure in medicine that provides a greater measure of improvement over an extensive group of problems and diseases than bariatric surgery,” said Dr. Chebli, who has personally performed over 1,500 bariatric surgeries. “The successful, long-term management of obesity, type 2 diabetes and other simultaneous chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and sleep apnea depends on a dedicated, multidisciplinary team working together with the patient and their family.”
Additionally, Dr. Chebli serves as Chair-Elect of the governor-appointed Florida Diabetes Advisory Council.
Venice Regional Bayfront Health is the only hospital in Charlotte, Sarasota, and Manatee counties to receive dual Center of Excellence designation by Surgical Review Corporation and the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program.
