Obesity rates continue to increase in the United States, with serious health implications.  An estimated one-third of all Americans today are overweight or obese, increasing the risk of weight-related health conditions which include:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Hypertension
  • Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Gastro-esophogeal reflux disease
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Depression

Bariatric surgery is reserved for those who have been unable to achieve long-term weight loss through diet and exercise.  For many, it may offer the only remaining hope for improved health, a longer lifespan and a better quality of life.
