Weight loss surgery can significantly improve your health and free you to pursue the active and happy life you deserve. According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) some of the benefits may include:
As with any major surgery, weight loss procedures carry some risks. Our surgeons and dedicated care team will carefully review all potential risks well before your surgery. Common complications include pneumonia, blood clots, infection, bleeding, leaking at staple lines, ulcers, hernia and gallstones. Generally, the risks associated with weight loss surgery are significantly less than the risk of remaining morbidly obese.
Please note: Patient results may vary. Weight loss success also depends on many other important factors, such as nutrition, exercise, behavior modification, and more. Consult your physician about the benefits and risks of any surgical procedure or treatment.
