While we always emphasize the importance of a healthy lifestyle which includes proper weight management through a balanced diet and consistent exercise program, we also recognize that some patients who struggle with losing weight need a more aggressive and lasting solution. While surgical intervention might at first seem to be a drastic measure to control this epidemic, once the best procedures are more completely understood, bariatric surgery can be one of the best options for permanent weight loss and control of this worldwide health problem.
