The Scoop on Weight Loss Surgery

Q: I am a 37 year old male from Orlando, Florida. I have been overweight most of my life which has kept me from dating. I am seriously considering gastric bypass surgery but have heard that there are other, less invasive procedures that show better results. Do you know of them and if so, what are the pros and cons of both?


 

Obesity is a common problem in our country. In fact, the CDC reported that roughly 2/3rds of American adults are overweight.The treatment of obesity is tricky, especially if the problem is not caused by an endocrine or metabolic abnormality. In recent years, minimally invasive weight loss surgery has become more popular. Compared to a traditional gastric bypass, the procedure is done with a laparoscope instead of a single, large incision. And according to information from the University of Chicago Medical Center, patients report less pain and fewer complications such as: wound infection and hernias.

Remember, any surgical procedure comes with potential complications and it is very important to discuss your options in depth with a health care professional.
