WEIGHT-LOSS SURGICAL PROCEDURES FOR THE TREATMENT OF OBESITY
You are not alone in dealing with this life-threatening disease and our staff of professional experts is here to help you.
At University General Hospital's Bariatric Surgery Center, we understand that obesity is rapidly becoming a national healthcare problem. More importantly, we understand that the issue is personal to you if you suffer from the disease of obesity.
Until now, obesity has been a difficult disease to treat because it is a multi-factorial disease and no one treatment has been considered a “cure.” Contributing factors for obesity include genetics, environment, socio-economic, psychological, and medical, and all of these factors come into play when dealing with and treating obesity.
Obesity is considered “morbid” when it reaches the point of signicantly increasing the risk of obesity-related health conditions or serious diseases, called co-morbidities, that can cause death or disability.
