San Angelo Weight Loss Surgery

Understanding Your Options For Bariatric Surgery

Obesity is a rapidly increasing epidemic—more than one-third of the adult population in our country is obese. This serious condition leads to additional health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. If left untreated, obesity can be fatal.

Higher medical costs are another cause for concern regarding obesity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state medical costs for obese patients are approximately $1,500 higher than for patients of average weight.

Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is a tool to help patients with obesity with their battle to regain control of their health. Sleeve gastrectomy, a type of bariatric surgery offered nationwide, is now available via the Shannon Weight Loss Center.

The goal of bariatric surgery is to reduce the patient's caloric intake and curb hunger. The sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive procedure that narrows the size of the stomach, causing you to consume fewer calories.

The operation removes the receptors that trigger hunger which causes the appetite to decrease. National standards are used to determine if a patient qualifies for surgery.
