Weight loss surgery may eliminate health conditions
At Summa’s Bariatric Care Center, our weight loss surgery team can eliminate several serious conditions that often accompany obesity, including:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
- Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
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.
Patients who lose a significant amount of weight often see dramatic improvement or even cure these conditions. They can also 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.
