What is Obesity Surgery?
Obesity surgery is a term that covers all the different surgical procedures used to help extremely overweight or morbidly obese patients lose weight.
Morbidly obese patients are usually identified by their Body Mass Index (BMI) measurement, although other factors may also be taken into account. Morbid obesity is associated with an increased risk of developing illnesses such as: heart attack, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, sleep disorders and joint pain. Bariatric surgery can cure or greatly improve these illnesses as well as give the patient an improved quality of life. Read more about obesity - causes, consequences and treatment options here.
