Weight Loss Surgery Program Launches Innovative Mobile App

Roger Williams Medical Center’s bariatric surgery program has launched an innovative mobile application that helps individuals considering surgery as well as supporting those who have already had weight loss surgery. It is available on most app stores online by searching “My RI Weight Loss Coach”.

The free app serves as a digital coach for people before and after surgery. It links to a wealth of weight loss and bariatric surgery information, while providing online registration to the monthly informational seminars on bariatric surgery held at Roger Williams. Perhaps most importantly, it enables direct contact with people who have already had surgery as well as weight loss surgery caregivers.

The Bariatric Surgery Program at Roger Williams has been accredited as a Center of Excel­lence by the American College of Surgeons since 2005. The team at Roger Williams, led by Dr. Dieter Pohl, has performed more than 3,000 weight loss surgeries. To learn more, visit www.loseweightri.com
