WHAT IS WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY?
Weight loss (Bariatric) surgery is a tool that in a
comprehensive weight management plan allows the patient
to have long-term success in losing weight and
maintaining that weight loss.
Weight loss surgery is the only known cure for adult
onset diabetes and sleep apnea; it can “cure”
hypertension in 80 percent of individuals and
significantly improve the rest.
Weight loss surgery is not for everyone. It works best
for those who have seriously committed to the long-term
lifestyle change necessary to make the surgery
successful. Regular life-long follow-up is necessary to
achieve the best results and minimize complications.
Obesity is not a disease that is conquered in a day,
month, or a year. It is not a disease that is “fixed”
with surgery. It is a disease that must be fought
everyday for the rest of your life. Obesity is a disease
that must be fought with the choices we make every
single day. It must be fought for our future and the
future of our children.
