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.
