For patients in need of bariatric surgery, losing weight can be a matter of life and death. Obesity puts people at a greater risk for a number of health conditions including diabetes, stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure, gallstones and sleep apnea. Studies have shown that six months after weight loss surgery, patients lose between 30% and 50% of their excess weight. This change can positively affect people’s health, as well as their confidence and self-esteem.
There are a number of different procedures that surgeons may offer patients seeking medical weight loss, including:
- Gastric Bypass
- Gastric Banding (Lap-Band)
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Duodenal Switch
