Honolulu, Hawaii Bariatric Surgery Practice Launches New Website to Reach Out to Patients Fighting Morbid Obesity
Date:3/22/2010

Dr. Steven Fowler with Aloha Surgery, a center offering bariatric surgery in Honolulu, Hawaii, is unveiling a new, interactive website geared toward educating web visitors about state-of-the-art procedures to help fight morbid obesity.

(Vocus) March 22, 2010 -- More than three million Americans suffer from morbid obesity, weighing 80 pounds or more over the average for their size and body type. A bariatric surgeon in Honolulu is launching a new website to help bring information on new surgical methods designed to help patients who suffer from morbid obesity. The new website from Dr. Steven Fowler with Aloha Surgery illustrates the comprehensive weight loss surgery program available from the practice, as well as detailed information on effective bariatric surgery procedures and interactive elements that can help visitors determine if surgical treatment may be right for them.

Aloha Surgery’s new website, developed in collaboration with Rosemont Media™, a medical and dental website design firm in San Diego, is a comprehensive exploration of programs and procedures offered by the practice to give people the tools they need to effectively lose weight and keep it off. The site explains procedures such as REALIZE® Band and LAP-BAND® System surgery in Honolulu, Hawaii. These treatments involve the placement of an adjustable and removable gastric band around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a smaller stomach pouch so that the patient will get an earlier feeling of fullness after eating less food. LAP-BAND® System and REALIZE® Band patients can often lose 1 to 2 pounds per week, and the band can be adjusted to allow greater or lesser food intake. The site also describes the single-incision weight loss surgery technique – a procedure designed to perform weight loss surgery using only one small incision, thereby decreasing the appearance of scarring and minimizing recovery time. Dr. Fowler is known to have performed the first single-incision LAP-BAND® System surgery in Hawaii.

The new website includes internet video educational documentaries with visual descriptions of procedures, as well as a biography of Dr. Fowler and an introduction to his team. A full staff of dieticians, nurses, psychologists, and an exercise specialist make up Aloha Surgery comprehensive Hawaii weight loss surgery program, focusing on both physical and emotional health so that those considering treatment will have their needs met throughout the entire weight loss process. Aloha Surgery’s new site is also equipped with an updated blog, and a calendar of events page to let visitors know dates and locations of Dr. Fowler’s upcoming free seminars. The seminars allow individuals to ask questions, hear about procedures, and talk with others about weight loss surgery and the lifestyle changes that accompany the fight against morbid obesity. Visitors to the new website can also determine their body mass index (BMI) with an online BMI calculator that can instantly tell them if their current weight may qualify them for surgical weight loss treatment.

Dr. Fowler says Aloha Surgery’s new website is a reflection of the broad range of services he provides, in addition to being an educational tool for web visitors. He says he hopes that people who are affected by morbid obesity understand that there are methods available that can help them lose weight and dramatically reduce serious health risks that obesity can cause.

Aloha Surgery has been recognized as a Center of Excellence by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), one of the 303 bariatric surgery centers nationwide to achieve that distinction.
For more information on Aloha Surgery, the practice can be reached at 928 Nuuanu Ave, #400, Honolulu, HI 96813 – Phone: (808) 521-1300. www.alohasurgery.com.
