Mega Doctor News: July 28, 2014

Philip Schauer, M.D., the Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Bariatric and Metabolic Institute spoke to Mega Doctor News during their important partnership with Doctors Hospital at Renaissance (DHR).

During this conversation he said that the strategy was education, bringing awareness to patients and doctors in this region about the problem of obesity, treatment, and preventive strategies.

Dr. Schauer also said that this has been a relationship that has developed for the past two years. “Our bariatric and metabolic institute has been present for about ten years and we have been quite successful in many aspects in terms of treatment and research in this area.” Dr. Schauer stated, “We were approached by leadership in DHR to begin dialogue about a working relationship. It also was quite convenient and coincidental that one of the trainees, our surgical fellow, Dr. Singh happened to get a position with DHR about two years ago. So that was certainly very helpful in bringing this relationship together.” Dr. Singh is the Medical Director of the Doctors Hospital at Renaissance Bariatric and Metabolic Institute. Read More
