BARIATRIC MEDICINE

You’re tired all the time. You can’t tie your shoes or play with your children. Worse yet, you hate going out in public, and you may feel self-conscious even simply going to the store.

If you are obese, your health is at risk. You have a higher chance of developing Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. Your joints and muscles are stressed, and you could be suffering from depression.

You are a candidate for weight-loss surgery if you

  • have a BMI of 35 with obesity-related health problems, or a BMI greater than 40
  • have tried other weight-loss programs and still find yourself overweight
  • are willing to commit to lifestyle changes and life-long follow-up
Stop dieting. Start living. See if weight-loss surgery could be your answer.
