Nanticoke Weight Loss & General Surgery Receives Center of Excellence Award for Non-Surgical Program

Nanticoke Weight Loss and General Surgery has received the Center of Excellence award from Robard Corporation for its New Direction medical (non-surgical) weight loss program. To achieve this designation, a New Direction program must have written patient management plans and protocols in place that follow the Standard Recommended Guidelines for the Robard New Direction Weight Management Program – the same standards that recognized by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and Obesity Medicine Association (OMA).

Nanticoke Health Services recognizes the importance of offering our community a physician-supervised weight loss program that provides treatment in a clinical setting with licensed healthcare professionals including board-certified physicians and a registered dietitian. Nanticoke Weight Loss & General Surgery offers services including medical evaluation, nutrition education, pharmacotherapy, physical activity and behavioral therapy, as well as bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

The medical weight loss program at Nanticoke Weight Loss & General Surgery is led by Dr. Sandra Palavecino, a Board Certified Internist and Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. Dr. Palavecino helps with the diagnosis and staging of the disease and develops an individualized program to achieve each patient’s weight loss goal.

Georgetown has a long history spanning back to 1791 when the county seat moved there from Lewes, which was criticized for being too far from western Delaware. Originally, Georgetown was laid out in a large square, but that was quickly changed to the circle we all associate with Georgetown with the historic Georgetown Circle at the center.
