Date:11/25/2008

Dr. Van L. Wagner with Heart of America Bariatrics, LLC is continuing the fight against morbid obesity by expanding his reach to the community and around the world with an educational, state-of-the-art new website. www.hoab.org incorporates many of the newest and most innovative web tools.

(Vocus) November 25, 2008 -- Dr. Van L. Wagner and the St. Louis, Missouri bariatric weight loss surgery team at Heart of America Bariatrics, LLC are using the latest in internet technology to reach out to patients who are considering surgical procedures to combat morbid obesity. In a creative partnership with Rosemont Media, a bariatric surgery website design firm based in San Diego, California, Dr. Wagner has crafted an innovative new site designed to give comprehensive information to prospective patients on some of the most effective ways to lose weight and reduce serious health risks associated with obesity.

Morbid obesity is classified as being about 100 pounds over what's considered the ideal body weight for an individual. A person with a body mass index (BMI) of more than 35 is typically found to be morbidly obese. The condition affects more than 3 million Americans. Not only can morbid obesity have a significantly negative impact on a person's self-esteem, it has also been linked to life-threatening afflictions such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

Dr. Van L. Wagner, is a board-certified St. Louis, Missouri bariatric surgeon who has performed hundreds of procedures that have helped morbidly obese patients lose significant amounts of weight and change their lifestyles. Dr. Wagner's new website is aimed at educating individuals about the many options available which can be effective in helping them turn their lives around. Weight loss surgery procedures offered by Dr. Wagner include LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding, REALIZE Band, Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, and gastric sleeve surgery. www.hoab.org provides detailed information on these procedures, in addition to candidacy requirements, patient information, and testimonials from some of his patients who have undergone weight loss surgery. The website also contains an on-line tool for patients to determine their body mass index, and web-video documentaries featuring Dr. Wagner that give an overview of his practice and what patients can expect.

At Heart of America Bariatrics' new website, St. Louis LAP-BAND® System and gastric bypass surgeon Van L. Wagner, MD also lists the dates and locations of free seminars offered to individuals who are considering weight loss surgery. These seminars are in-person educational tools which describe various aspects of procedures and give people an idea of what the process is like before, during, and after surgery.

Dr. Wagner hopes that the new website for Heart of America Bariatrics, LLC will help patients realize that there are effective options for them in the fight against morbid obesity, and that he and his team are committed to offering surgical solutions that can aid them in losing weight and leading healthier lives.
