If you’re struggling with excess weight and the feelings of isolation and frustration that come from being unable to do everyday activities with ease – you’re not alone. The number of people in the United States who suffer from obesity is nearing 40 percent of the population. But there are safe and effective options to help you lose weight and get on the path to a healthier lifestyle.
People who are overweight often face a social stigma – that they’re lazy or don’t exercise or eat excessively – and that’s not the case. Genetics, working all day at a computer, and the fast food culture have all played a role in the increasing number of people losing their battle with weight. More people than ever before qualify for weight loss procedures, and we offer the support, education and accountability people need to reach long term success.
It’s rewarding to help people and have an impact on the many disease processes that affect quality of life including sleep apnea, acid reflux, diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol, and even bone and joint pain. What’s more, these procedures can improve and sometimes reverse medical conditions that can shorten a person’s life when left untreated.
At CHI Memorial Metabolic and Bariatric Care it is our aim to have the best educated and most knowledgeable group of patients where this type of surgery is concerned. Our extensive experience has shown that when people are informed, empowered, and in control of their journey, they are most likely to find success.
