Reasons for Surgery

There are many reasons to consider weight loss surgery, not least of which are the many health conditions that have been linked to being overweight.

  • Heart disease and stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Gallbladder disease and gallstones
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea  and asthma

Being overweight doesn’t just affect your physical health either. It can also cause poor self-image, low self-esteem, social isolation, and depression. It can have a profound effect on your relationships, your job, and your future.
