Washington, Mo. – Is weight-loss surgery right for you?

Excess weight – a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more – puts people at high risk for acquiring life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes. When diet and exercise are not enough for people to maintain a healthy body weight, there are surgical options to losing those harmful and unwanted pounds.

Many health insurance companies assist with the costs of weight loss – or bariatric – surgeries and financial assistance may be available to those who qualify. Find out more at a free seminar hosted by the medical professionals at Mercy Bariatric Center:
