Honesdale Bariatric Program Announcement, Free Seminar

Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers is pleased to announce the establishment of Honesdale Bariatrics, a weight loss program offered by Honesdale Surgical Associates and Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers. Both non-surgical and surgical procedures will be performed at Wayne Memorial Hospital by experienced weight-loss surgeons Lisa Medvetz, MD, FACS and Yiang (Sean) Yuan, MD, FACS.
“I have been able to help so many patients who previously struggled to reach a healthy weight through utilizing weight loss management procedures,” said Dr. Medvetz, who has been performing bariatric surgery for more than 10 years, “and I look forward to offering the same help to residents of the greater Honesdale area.”
Honesdale Bariatrics will offer Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, AspireAssist, intra-gastric balloon insertion, gastric bypass and duodenal switch, revisions of bariatric procedures and non-surgical protocols. Dr. Medvetz and Dr. Yuan will also oversee management of complications related to bariatric procedures.
“Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers offers a comprehensive Bariatrics program,” says Frederick Jackson, executive director Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC). “This includes nutrition counseling and behavioral health consultations to support patients in achieving their weight loss goals.”
The Bariatric program was prompted by a free weight loss seminar presented by Dr. Medvetz at Wayne Memorial Hospital last fall which drew close to 75 attendees. Dr. Medvetz will hold a second free weight loss seminar on Wednesday, February 7th, at 6pm at Wayne Memorial Hospital. All are welcome, but an RSVP is appreciated by emailing For more information about the program, call (570) 253-8635.
