Long-Term Weight Loss through Minimally Invasive Surgery
There are an estimated 93 million people in the United States who are obese, with more than 11 million suffering from severe obesity. Obesity is a disease that results in excessive amounts of body fat. This disease is not simply caused by poor diet or a lack of exercise. There are several factors that contribute to obesity that are both environmental and genetic. Know that obesity is not your fault. It is possible to treat and manage obesity and you do not have to do it alone. Surgical weight loss is a process that:
- Reduces obesity
- Improves mortality
- Decreases health risks of chronic diseases
At Piedmont Medical Center, your surgeon uses minimally invasive techniques to conduct weight loss surgery, including:
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
These techniques involve:
- Restriction – Surgery that shrinks the size of the stomach and slows down digestion. This enables you to feel full sooner, so you eat less.
- Restriction & Malabsorption – This type of surgery makes the stomach smaller and remove or bypasses part of the digestive tract, making it more difficult for your body to absorb calories.
Your doctor will assess your individual circumstance in order to develop a plan customized to your needs. In addition to minimally invasive surgical options, our surgical weight loss program connects you with assistance for every step of your lifelong surgical weight loss journey including:
- Insurance guidance
- Exercise and nutrition information
- Psychological counseling
- Support groups
