Facts About Obesity

  • 20 million Americans are morbidly obese.
  • There are more deaths related to obesity than deaths from colon, lung, and breast cancer combined per year.
  • Morbid obesity results in a potential loss of 5-20 quality life years per person.
  • Bariatric surgery is affordable and has a return on investment within two years.


Bariatric Surgery for Obesity

Bariatric surgery is the only scientifically-based effective long-term solution for morbid obesity and its associated metabolic effects. In fact, bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for Type II Diabetes when compared to the best available medical therapy.

Bariatric surgery is not only an effective treatment for morbid obesity but also an effective prevention from the damages of being morbidly obese to live longer and to live better.

I often meet people from all walks of life who suffer from the same problem and have tried the same things only to unfortunately obtain the same disappointing results. Doing the same things repeatedly hoping for something better but not achieving better results is extremely disappointing and for a lot of people it is demoralizing. It causes people to give up in not just dieting and exercise but also life in general.

For those who have not had success with diet and exercise, Bariatric Surgery remains the most scientifically effective and safe method for weight loss.
