Weight Loss Health Guide


For people who have been obese for years, the decision to undergo weight loss surgery, or bariatric surgery, is life changing. Weight loss surgery is designed to treat morbid obesity by surgically changing the amount of food a person can consume and needs to feel satisfied. It is only performed on people who are significantly overweight and for whom diet and exercise have failed, but it is a life-changing decision that has the potential to resolve or improve serious obesity-related medical conditions and enhance quality of life.
