Weight Loss Surgery

Gastrointestinal Surgery for Relief of Severe Obesity

Weight loss surgery, also referred to as Bariatric surgery, Gastric surgery or Gastrointestinal surgery, comprises a range of surgical procedures designed to alleviate severe obesity in patients: e.g. stomach bypass, stomach stapling, stomach balloon or lap band®.

Weight Loss Surgery - Impact on Obesity

Weight loss surgery has a direct impact on obesity, although obese patients are advised that any bariatric or gastrointestinal surgery must be accompanied by weight-related lifestyle changes in the form of diet modification and increased physical exercise.

A patient's commitment to improving their eating habits, taking regular physical exercise and making other weight-related behavioral changes, is an essential element for the long term success of any weight loss surgery.

Weight Loss Surgery - An Effective Option for Obesity

Severe obesity is a chronic condition that is difficult to treat through diet and exercise alone. Gastrointestinal surgery is the best option for people who are severely obese and cannot lose weight by traditional means or who suffer from serious obesity-related health problems. The surgery promotes weight loss by restricting food intake and, in some operations, interrupting the digestive process.

Reduces Obesity But Diet and Lifestyle Changes Needed

Weight loss surgery can be a highly effective treatment for obesity but as in other treatments for obesity, the best results are achieved with healthy eating behaviors and regular physical activity.
