Weight loss Surgery

Over the last decade, weight loss surgery has been continually refined to improve results and minimize risks. Today, bariatric surgeons have access to a substantial body of clinical data that supports the use of surgery as a safe and effective weight loss treatment when other methods have failed

 

Proven health and quality-of-life benefits

Compared with other weight loss methods, such as dieting, surgery provides the longest period of sustained weight loss in patients for whom all other therapies have failed. It has also been shown to improve many obesity-related health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

 

Many patients who have had bariatric surgery report improvements in their quality of life, social interactions, psychological well-being, employment opportunities, and economic condition.
