Bariatric Surgery

Is Being Overweight Affecting Your Health and Overall Quality of Life?

For several people the answer is yes.  Obesity is a disease that affects more than one third of people in the United States. It is the second leading cause of preventable death. The contributing factors that can lead to obesity include metabolic or other pre-existing health conditions, eating disorders, environmental factors or genetics.

Overcoming obesity can be difficult.

You may have tried several weight loss treatments or methods to lose weight, but were unsuccessful. Fortunately, bariatric surgery is an option that often yields results and success stories*.
