Bariatric Surgery The Only Successful Treatment for Advanced Obesity
Obesity is now a common occurrence among Americans, with the most advanced form, termed “morbid obesity,” affecting nearly 15 million people in the United States.
At Fairfield Medical Center, we understand the strain that this condition can put on an individual, negatively impacting both health and quality of life. We’re determined to help.
Studies have shown that medical therapy (like diets, exercise and medications) is largely unsuccessful in treating advanced obesity. Bariatric surgery, however, has been shown to successfully treat the condition in 80-90% of patients.
This surgery is about more than improving your health: it’s about getting your life back.
When the recommended lifestyle changes are applied, weight loss surgery offers a lifeline for millions of Americans struggling with their weight.
