Spotlight on Surgical Options for Weight Loss

The reasons for the obesity epidemic are varied and complex and no one factor is to blame. Poor food selection, large portions, appetite hormones, and calorie intake, have been tirelessly implicated. Still, there is no one long-lasting weight-loss strategy that works for everyone. 

More than one-third of American adults are considered obese, having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater. And approximately one in 20 Americans have a BMI greater than 40, a number that categorizes them as morbidly obese.

If you are obese, and have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight on your own or through a medically supervised program of diet, exercise or medication, you may have wondered if bariatric surgery is right for you. What is certain is that the risks and benefits of surgery must be carefully weighed, along with finding a suitable bariatric program and qualified surgeon that can meet our personal and medical needs and preferences.
