Safe, Long-term Weight-loss Surgery

Bariatric surgery or “weight-loss surgery” may be a good option for people who are morbidly obese and have failed to achieve and sustain long-term weight loss. The surgery works using both malabsorption and restriction: therefore, patients do not absorb some calories and nutrients and are satisfied with smaller portions of food.

Only surgery is proven to promote significant and sustained weight loss for qualifying individuals, and it helps improve or eliminate many additional health conditions. Of course, bariatric surgery is a tool, not a cure. For the surgery to be effective long term, it must be used properly. Through lifestyle changes such as regular exercise and a health food plan, many patients are able to make a long-term change for better health.
