Bariatic Surgery

Many people with excessive weight problems are turning to weight loss surgery or obesity surgery. It is fast becoming a popular option when other weight loss methods, such as diet, exercise and supplementation have failed. Failure of these methods means that a person is unable to maintain a healthy weight and in many cases, any weight lost is regained. And, excessive weight, if not dealt with, can lead to long term health problems such as cancer, heart disease or coronary strokes.

Perhaps in the next 25 years, obesity will become the biggest financial drain on one’s family and country along with other associated life style disorders like Diabetes and Hypertension to name a few. Obesity refers to a spectrum of problems due to excess weight ranging from being mildly overweight to being morbidly obese. Patients with morbid obesity do not tend to respond to medical means of weight loss.

Weight Loss Surgery includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. It is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with an implanted medical device (gastric banding) or through the removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery). Long-term studies show that these weight loss surgical procedures result in significant long-term weight loss, help recovery from diabetes, improve cardiovascular risk factors and reduce mortality by 23% from 40%.
