COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Health conditions related to obesity are among the leading causes of preventable death. For those who have struggled to lose weight, surgery may be an option.

Patrick Davis, M.D., a physician with Maury Regional Medical Group (MRMG) Surgery, is offering a series of small group sessions about surgical weight loss for those who want to learn more. Those interested are invited to attend a session of their choice on May 21, June 18 or July 23. Each session will begin at 6 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room at Maury Regional Medical Center.

During these informal sessions, Dr. Davis will share an overview of weight loss surgery, including the types of procedures he performs.
