|OBESITY CONTROL SURGERY|
The surgical treatment of obesity is called bariatric surgery after
the Greek words, baros, meaning "weight", and iatrikos, meaning "medical".
This is the most rapidly growing area of surgical practice in the
Western world today. This reflects the ability of bariatric surgical procedures
to provide a solution to an otherwise unsolvable problem and the evolution
of safer, less invasive and more conservative forms of procedures.
The Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery
The benefits come in the shape of improved health, reduced long-term risk
of disease, and improvement in your quality of life. The act of losing weight
has been proven effective at decreasing high blood pressure and is a known
cure of diabetes type-II, sleep apnea, asthma and infertility.
Weight loss surgery allows you to take control over your hunger and end the
social and intrapersonal implications caused by obesity. Not only will you
feel more comfortable in places where space is limited, but you will be able
to play with your kids and improve relationships with the people who care about
you the most.
Having bariatric weight loss surgery is a very personal decision as well
as a medical one. Your healthcare professional can provide advice to you
about obesity-related procedures and can help decide which weight loss surgery
is right for you.
