Why Bariatric Surgery?

Sure, you’re potentially interested in weight-loss surgery, but do you really need surgery to achieve weight loss? Your friends and family probably downplay the severity of your obesity, and may even discourage you from taking such “drastic measures.” After all, they think you’re doing fine. Why would you have to have surgery? You’re not like many other obese individuals, right? You’ve got it all under control, right? 

Well, what your loved ones don’t understand is very clear to us. You’ve been trying for years to lose weight and the problem just keeps getting worse. Diet and exercise are no longer working. You’re tired of this. You’re efforts are not getting you anywhere.  You feel like giving up. And now your health is in jeopardy.  You’ve likely developed multiple health problems over the past few years that are steadily getting worse. Do your friends and family know about these multiple health problems? Do they know that these problems are caused by obesity?   

We want you to know that there is hope for you! While diet and exercise alone will likely fail you every time, there still is a great option for you to achieve the success you deserve.  Bariatric surgery is the answer! Once you have bariatric surgery your health changes rapidly & dramatically. We wish that you could see the success stories that we see every day. Are you tired of taking insulin for your type 2 diabetes? You can expect your diabetes to improve rapidly after surgery and many patients are able to stop their insulin all together after surgery. What about your CPAP machine? Can you imagine sleeping soundly all night long without it? That is a real possibility. As you lose weight we expect your sleep apnea to greatly improve to the point that many patients no longer need it. How about reflux? Tired of heartburn & having to take medication every day for it? Bariatric surgery improves these symptoms as well. We also expect that multiple other health problems will improve as you lose weight, including:

  • Arthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Back pain
  • Fluid retention & edema
  • Varicose veins
  • Heart disease & heart failure
  • Stroke risk
  • Depression
  • Cancer risk
  • Infertility

We would love for you to achieve the success that so many of our patients enjoy. Can you imagine living a life that includes such drastic improvements in your health? Can you foresee a life in which you are no longer disabled and are capable of working again? Can you picture having an active life again and being able to play with your kids or grandkids? Can you imagine being able to travel & enjoy your life again? Well, we can. We believe that with bariatric surgery this is possible for you. We are ready to help you. 

Are you ready for change?
