Surgical Weight Loss

Morbid obesity is associated with a multitude of health problems, many of which increase the risk of death. It is estimated more than over 300,000 deaths a year are caused by obesity-related illnesses - three times the number of people who die each year from breast cancer and colon cancer combined. Therefore, the need to lose weight is not simply cosmetic, but lifesaving. The good news is that most obesity-related health problems improve, and some are even cured, after weight loss surgery.
