Congratulations, Dr. Jones!
Dr. Daniel Jones, Director of the Weight Loss Surgery Center at BIDMC, has been named Vice President of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES). SAGES works to improve the quality of gastrointestinal and endoscopic surgical patient care through education, research and innovation.
Dr. Jones was also recently named President of the Association of Surgical Education (ASE), an organization dedicated to promoting and rewarding innovation, development and research in surgical education.
Thanks for the feedback! Your continued success and well-being is of upmost importance to our bariatric multidisciplinary team. The feedback and comments that you have provided to our clinical and administrative team, from personal conversations to hospital surveys, have been most helpful to meet your pre- and post-operative needs.
We truly appreciate your terrific suggestions and will continue to implement them whenever possible to improve our program. During the past year, we have received substantial feedback from many patients stating that it was challenging to purchase the required specialty supplemental vitamins and protein supplements.
In response to this request, we currently have a varied selection of Bariatric Advantage products available for purchase in our Bariatric Clinic. Many patients have expressed that it has been very helpful to purchase the vitamins in chewable form and protein supplements at their pre- and post-operative appointments at BIDMC.
If you are interested in learning more about our Bariatric Advantage products, please contact the clinic at 617-667-2845.
