The daily challenges of being overweight are more than an inconvenience. Obesity is a disease and contributes to a number of health-related risks such as diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea. Proper treatment is necessary, and when your weight makes it difficult to exercise and diet, it may be time for another approach.
Bariatric surgery, also known as weight-loss surgery, can give you a fresh start but it is not the end of your journey. It takes dedication to lose the weight and keep it off, even after surgery.
If you qualify for weight-loss surgery, look to the surgeons at the Valley Care Clinics Weight Loss Center. You and your bariatric surgeon can choose the procedure that’s right for you.
