What is Obesity?
Obesity is a complex medical condition that occurs when you have too much body fat. Obesity is often associated with a lower life expectancy and a reduced quality of life, including physical limitations, body pain and fatigue.


Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery
Bariatric surgery can help you lose as much as 85 percent or more of your excess weight, which is a major reason it often has a huge impact on your overall health.
