Weight Loss Treatment
If you suffer from severe obesity and cannot lose weight with a healthy diet and exercise, bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) might be an option for you.
Severe obesity impacts your health including increasing your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, heart disease, infertility, and other obesity related health conditions.
