Address life-threatening medical conditions through bariatric surgery

Obesity puts a severe strain on the body and increases your risk of developing other serious medical conditions. These conditions lower quality of life and can lead to disability or early death. Many people have a combination of many of these conditions — called co-morbidities — which adds to their impact. If you have a combination of several of these conditions, you may meet eligibility criteria to have bariatric surgery:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Sleep apnea
  • Asthma
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Cancers of the liver, pancreas, kidneys, endometrium, breast, colon, prostate and many others
  • GERD
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Back and spine disorders
  • Urinary incontinence

Bariatric surgery is a powerful tool that has been shown to reduce or even eliminate dangerous medical conditions over time. It can help you take control of your medical conditions and live the healthier life you want. If you are tired of struggling to manage your health issues and are concerned about how they will affect your future, you owe it to yourself and those you love to explore the possibility of bariatric surgery.
