What is bariatric surgery?
Extensive research has shown that bariatric/metabolic weight loss surgery is the most successful treatment for obesity and its related diseases.
Bariatric surgery goes beyond weight loss. Quality of life improves in approximately 95% of weight loss surgery patients, and there is an 89% reduction in five-year mortality. Besides the obvious benefit of improving your physical functioning and appearance, the surgery results in significant improvement or remission of the following metabolic diseases:
- Prediabetes and type 2 diabetes
- Metabolic syndrome
- Dyslipidemia and other types of cardiovascular disease
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- Venous insufficiency
- GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
- PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
