How obesity surgery and weight loss helps
Obesity has been linked to several serious medical conditions, including:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Obstructive sleep apnoea
- Gallbladder disease and gallstones
Obesity surgery should be considered if you suffer from clinically severe obesity and are experiencing any symptoms relating to any of the above medical conditions. It is a long-term, life changing decision; it is a journey to better health and quality of life.
Understanding Bariatric Obesity Surgery
Every person and their body are different. What works for one person, may not work for another. There are many different surgeries available but finding the right one for you that is safe and healthy is our utmost priority. Your health and lifestyle as well as food and weight concerns need to be carefully considered in the decision of which obesity surgery is best for you.
DO YOU NEED WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY ?
Depending on your individual weight and health, you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery. In order to determine whether this weight loss option is for you, take these first steps:
Medicare-Funded Sleep Studies
A good night’s sleep is important for good health and also for maintaining a healthy weight. Obesity may contribute to sleep problems such as sleep apnea, and sleep problems can also contribute to obesity. SIOS offers sleep studies, fully funded by Medicare.
