Weight loss surgery may eliminate health conditions

Approximately 300,000 people die each year from obesity-related illnesses. Obesity is now ranked as the second-highest cause of preventable deaths in the country.

At Summa’s Bariatric Care Center, our weight loss surgery team can improve or eliminate several serious conditions that often accompany obesity, including:

  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
  • Hypertension
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
  • Elevated Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels

Patients who lose a significant amount of weight often see dramatic improvement or even cure these conditions. They can reduce or eliminate many medications – and sleep without the need for a machine to help them breathe.

While diet and exercise have been consistently shown to result in weight loss, 90-95% regain the lost weight within 1-2 years. Compared to these results, weight loss surgery has been shown to be most effective in helping people to maintain significant weight loss.

If you are not a current Summa Bariatric Care Center patient and would like to learn more about our program, please call 888-900-6251.
