BOCA RATON, Fla. & SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - Dec. 17, 2020 - PRLog -- 20Lighter, LLC, a comprehensive weight loss program delivering dramatic health improvements through reductions of visceral fat and inflammation today announced an alliance with Dr. Roland Brandt and Dr. Michael Fleischman of Straith Orthopedics, part of the independent, not-for-profit Straith Hospital in Southfield, Michigan. "As surgeons we often have limited options to take care of some of our most impaired patients.  At Straith Orthopedics we strive to support every patient in becoming a better version of themselves and improve their pain and function with the most up to date surgical techniques and medical advice. This is an innovative and unparalleled tool in our tool bag that will help us accomplish that," said Dr. Fleischman.

The goal of the relationship is enabling patients to achieve an optimal surgical outcome and recovery by significantly improving weight, and related conditions like type 2 diabetes, prior to an orthopedic surgery procedure. "We at 20Lighter, are excited to work with Straith Orthopedics patients to positively impact their surgical journey and overall quality of life," said Dr. Jessica Barnes, CEO of 20Lighter. "So much evidence points to the importance of optimizing metrics like BMI and HbA1c for a smooth recovery, strong rehab and maximal functional outcomes after orthopedic surgery."
