Bariatric Surgery Options:

Severe obesity is a disease that, in the past several years, has become more widespread and has grown to epidemic proportions. Obesity is not caused by a character defect, or a simple lack of will power, rather it is a medical condition that affects almost 20 million Americans and has become the greatest health care problem in the United States today. People with obesity are at greater risk for co-morbid conditions such as:

· Diabetes

· High Blood Pressure

· Sleep Apnea and

· Heart Problems

Moreover, excess weight affects your health, your self-esteem, and your relationships.

Diet and exercise are most often ineffective in cases of severe obesity. Chances are you have been down that road before, tried “everything” and done the “yo-yo” dieting, which only hurts your body and increases your feelings of hopelessness. Each diet failure can leave you feeling defeated, but there is hope.
