UNDERSTANDING OBESITY

Obesity is a chronic disease with multiple and complex causes, which is difficult to treat through diet and exercise alone. It is important to understand that medical treatments, including surgery, are not a cure for obesity, but a way to control this disease. Morbid obesity increases the risk for serious progressive diseases like Diabetes, High blood pressure, High Cholesterol, Sleep Apnea etc. and can shorten life expectancy.

WHAT IS BARIATRIC SURGERY?

Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, is a type of procedure performed on people who are obese,for the purpose of losing weight.This weight loss is usually achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with an implanted medical device or through removal of a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch.

WHY BARIATRIC SURGERY?

People with morbid obesity suffer numerous medical problems such as diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, joint disease, and high cholesterol.While medical therapy and dietary therapy can improve weight related conditions, surgical weight reduction offers a more durable option to improve most weight-related medical conditions. The National Institutes of Health and numerous other medical organizations have endorsed surgical weight reduction as an effective method for treating morbid obesity.
