Surgical Weight Loss Solutions

Bariatric (weight loss) surgery is the most effective and durable treatment option for obese individuals. Bariatric procedures are tools that can help you level the playing field by helping control hunger and reduce the volume of food consumed. Some bariatric procedures also change how food is absorbed. These surgical tools along with the lifestyle and behavior changes help you  lose weight. Each procedure has different advantages and risks. The key to all the procedures is that they help control hunger, this allows you to have control over food and make the necessary changes to your food choices and eating habits. If the tool is used without changes to the eating habits & lifestyle, then you won’t lose weight and keep it off. Obesity is a chronic, relapsing disease that must be treated every day for the rest of your life.

Weight loss surgery involves both preparations before the surgery as well as after-surgery care to ensure that you lose weight safely and effectively. Thus, weight loss surgery is a holistic program that involves a long term commitment to certain healthy lifestyle and behavior changes. With this commitment to your long term success, we encourage and support you to develop and maintain these healthy habits.
