Bariatric surgery could be your way back to living life as you choose to. The restrictions that obesity place on you are frustrating, limiting, and often leave you out of the things other people are doing. If you’re ready to stop letting obesity control your life, let us help you make an informed decision about bariatric surgery. Isn’t it time?

15 million Americans have been diagnosed with the disease of morbid obesity, and many are candidates of bariatric surgery. Morbid obesity can be simply defined as: being 100 pounds above ideal body weight, or having a Body Mass Index (BMI) that is over 40. Use our BMI calculator to find out what your BMI is.

The following diseases and health complications have been attributed to morbid obesity:

  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Edema
  • Gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD)
  • High cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Hypertension
  • Sleep apnea
  • Urinary incontinence

With obesity comes increased risk of developing these conditions—and others—plus a high risk of premature death. Therefore, please take the possibility of medical weight loss seriously—it could save your life.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) provide the following guidelines:

  • Previous attempts at weight loss have not been successful
  • No medical or psychological conditions exist that would make surgery too risky
  • Patient is motivated and willing to undergo surgery and a complete change in lifestyle.
  • BMI (body mass index) is 40 or above.
  • BMI is 35 or above with the presence of diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, hyperlipidemia or other serious complications of obesity.

If this describes you, one of several bariatric surgery options may be right for you. These include laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy and adjustable gastric band (lap-bands). Request a free personal weight loss consultation with our bariatrics coordinator.
