Treatment Options

Most overweight people have experienced the “Dieting Yo-Yo”: they lose some pounds but soon gain back even more.  In the long run, they remain on the same medications for blood pressure and diabetes and they are still obese.

If you are obese and if neither lifestyle changes nor medications have helped you lose enough weight, surgery may be an option.  Bariatric surgery (surgery to treat obesity), helps keep weight loss off long-term, improves health, and has been shown in multiple studies to cure or significantly reduce many obesity co-morbidities.  It is safe in the long-term, fully covered by virtually all insurance plans and, with recent advances, can be minimally invasive and have you back home as early as the next day.
