POWR/PLUS is a new program aimed at stress reduction and weight loss. This program is exclusively for Mass General patients who are preparing to undergo surgery.
The MGH Weight Center and the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine have teamed up to design a program aimed at reducing weight and teaching relaxation techniques. This program is geared to all MGH patients who are undergoing surgery.
Research shows that both weight loss and stress management help patients prepare for surgery and contribute to positive outcomes after surgery. Learn more about the program by downloading the fact sheet:
