"The Weight Loss Doctor" Talks With Current Patients and New Candidates for LAP-BAND Procedure

PHOENIX, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2007 -- Dr. Terry Simpson, one of the leading LAP-BAND bariatric surgeons in the Western United States, is hosting a bariatric surgery seminar in Tucson, Arizona on Saturday, May 5, 2007.

The seminar will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2007 from 10:00am - 11:00am at the Omni Tucson Golf Resort at 2727 West Club Drive in Tucson. To register for this free seminar, visit or call 602.476.2334. Directions to the Omni Tucson Golf Resort are available at or by calling 520.297.2271.

Dr. Simpson, known by patients and industry peers as The Weight Loss Doctor, is the Managing Director of the Southwest Weight Loss Center -- one of the largest weight loss surgical practices in the Southwestern U.S. He is a celebrated author, having penned 4 books about pre- and post-op preparation, nutrition and care for weight loss surgery patients. Further, as a recognized expert among bariatric surgeons, he hosts a popular bariatric lecture series, and is a guest speaker at major bariatric events around the country. His popular seminar series is held throughout Arizona and is in Tucson on a quarterly basis.

"I host these seminars regularly as a forum for connecting current LAP-BAND patients with candidates considering the procedure for themselves," said Dr. Terry Simpson. "People tend to feel more comfortable in an educational environment with their peers, especially when considering something as life-changing as bariatric surgery. And, because we're seeing more interest from candidates who are only 50 - 150 lbs overweight, we like to present weight loss surgery candidates real people who have been in their shoes, so they can hear directly from others about what they can expect."

Additional seminars are being held in Phoenix at Southwest Weight Loss Centers on May 8 and again on May 24, 2007. Seminars begin at 5:30pm and are held at Southwest Weight Loss Centers located at 1840 W. Maryland, Suite A, Phoenix, Arizona 85015.
