Advances in Weight Loss Surgery

HICKORY, NC (WBTV) - Weight loss surgery is not an easy way to drop pounds. In our Health Connections segment on Wednesday, October 26th, Dr. L. James Cook told WBTV potential candidates include "people who are morbidly obese and have a long history of serious weight loss attempts."

You can watch Health Connections Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. and again Thursdays on WBTV This Morning.

Each week, a medical professional from Frye Regional Medical Center will bring you timely information to help keep you and your family safe.
