What are the benefits of bariatric surgery?
Why Choose Bariatric Surgery?
The first step in trying to cure obesity is to adhere to a sound diet and exercise program. If these don’t work, another non-surgical procedure to consider is Elipse gastric balloon or an intragastric balloon to reduce your appetite; we offer the Orbera intragastric balloon (an endoscopic six-month balloon). However, if all else fails to provide a satisfactory outcome in moderately and severely obese people, then bariatric surgery could be the most appropriate next step towards weight loss and improved health. Among the risks associated with obesity are certain cancers, heart disease and strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, gallbladder disease and gallstones, osteoarthritis, gout, and breathing problems such as sleep apnea.
