Bariatric Surgery: Is it Right for You?

If you're very overweight and can't lose pounds with a healthy diet and exercise, weight loss surgery might be an option for you. Weight loss, or bariatric, surgery can promote weight loss by limiting the amount of food your stomach can hold, limiting calorie and nutrient absorption, or both. The surgery is usually for those with a body mass index (BMI) above 40 or those with a BMI of 35 or greater with serious co-morbidities. Visit our Web site for more information.
