Obesity Epidemic and Bariatrics

Obesity-related health problems result in hundreds of thousands of deaths each year.1 In the United States alone, people are spending more than 60 billion dollars every year on trendy exercise equipment, yo-yo diet programs, and other techniques to lose weight. Unfortunately for most, these weight loss strategies aren’t working for a majority of people who battle with obesity every day.

Bariatric and metabolic procedures, such as Gastric Sleeve and RNY Gastric Bypass, are proven to help patients with obesity and diseases related to obesity. Most bariatric procedures significantly improve or even cure type II diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, knee and back problems, depression, heart disease, and cancer. Gastric surgery improves your overall health and quality of life and prolongs longevity.
