Weight Loss Surgery

Also known as: Bariatric Services

Improve your health, improve your quality of life

It’s no secret. Being overweight is bad for your health. It puts you at greater risk for serious issues like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, sleep apnea, high blood pressure and even some types of cancer. Health risks aside, for some people, being overweight means low self-esteem and an overriding unhappiness that keeps you from being the best you can be.

But, for many of us, losing weight on our own is a losing battle. Sometimes, diets help us shed the pounds, but don’t teach us how to maintain our new weight. We lose and we gain – over and over – which can be frustrating and disheartening.

Bariatric surgery recognized as an effective treatment

Organizations like the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association recognize weight loss surgery, also called “bariatric surgery,” as an effective treatment option for obesity and related diseases like diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. Bariatric surgery leads to significant weight loss, which often results in improvements – and sometimes elimination – of conditions like high cholesterol, migraines, reflux disease, sleep apnea, infertility and more. And, if you’re at a healthy weight, you’re at less risk for developing gallbladder disease, liver disease and many types of cancer.
