Surgical Weight Loss

According to the American Public Health Association (APHA), overweight and obesity are associated with 300,000 deaths each year in the United States. Today 97 million Americans, more than one-third of the adult population, are overweight or obese. To be considered obese, an adult must have a BMI of 30 or greater. An estimated 5 to 10 million of those are considered morbidly obese. 

In the past:

  • obesity was seen as a weakness or failure of the individual
  • diet and exercise were prescribed treatments
  • weight loss surgery was viewed as extreme and dangerous

In the present: 

  • obesity is considered a disease with serious health risks
  • diet and exercise remain the cornerstone of obesity treatment
  • surgery is accepted as proven treatment for obesity
