If someone you love is obese, you know how damaging it can be. Excess weight impacts your heath, self-esteem and relationships. People with obesity are also at greater risk for health problems.
Being overweight and obese can lead to devastating social, psychological and physical problems for a person.
These problems may include:
- Type II diabetes
- Heart disease
- Breathing problems
- Low self-esteem
- High blood pressure
- Gynecological problems in women
When diet and exercise alone aren’t working, Medical Center Hospital Bariatric Clinic offers surgical options, including the sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass surgery and the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band procedure.
These surgeries are successful when combined with an overall lifestyle change. We take the time to help prepare you to ensure your success.
