Bariatric Surgery

Obesity is a major healthcare concern in the United States as more than 30% of the US population is obese and almost 5% of the population is morbidly (severely) obese. An individual who is more than 100 pounds overweight or has a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater is classified as morbidly obese. For most patients who struggle with morbid obesity, the risks are substantial. Excess weight increases the risk and severity of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, gall bladder disease, joint disease, sleep apnea, respiratory problems, type-2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, depression and cancer.

A Healthy New Start

Conquering severe obesity is much more than reaching a number, whether it is a clothing size or a mark on a scale. Conquering obesity is about restoring and preserving your health, extending your life and achieving a satisfying lifestyle. Surgical weight reduction approaches have consistently been shown to produce effective and durable weight loss. To learn more about bariatric surgical options, visit any of the providers below.
