Morbid obesity is a chronic disease, meaning that its symptoms build slowly over an extended period of time. An estimated 5-10 million Americans are considered morbidly obese. Obesity becomes "morbid" when it reaches the point of significantly increasing the risk of one or more obesity-related health conditions or serious diseases (also known as co-morbidities) that can result either in significant physical disability or even death.

Weight loss surgery is major surgery. Its growing use to treat morbid obesity is the result of three factors: Our current knowledge of the significant health risks of morbid obesity; the relatively low risk and complications of the procedures versus not having surgery; and the ineffectiveness of current non-surgical approaches to produce sustained weight loss. This site will provide valuable information about the benefits and risks of weight loss surgery. However, the best way to get a full assessment of your condition is to schedule a consultation to determine if weight loss surgery may be an option for you.

Getting Started

Seminars are held every Tuesday at 1 P.M. in office.  This is a one hour, informative seminar titled, "The Truth About Weight Loss Surgery."  It will dispell any myths about weight loss surgery and give you a realistic, no holds barred view of the available options.  You may attend as a guest but are encouraged to proceed with your formal appointment at the time of the seminar to save you time and expedite the start of your new, healthier life.  Please call ahead as space is limited.
