Is Weight Loss Surgery Right for You?

If you have already tried diets to lose weight and other traditional weight loss methods and have been unsuccessful, surgical weight loss could be an option for you.  An estimated 97 million Americans, more than one-third of the adult population, are overweight or obese. Five to 10 million of those are considered morbidly obese. Morbid obesity is typically defined as being 100 lbs. or more over ideal body weight or having a Body Mass Index of 40 or higher. According to the National Institutes of Health Consensus Report, morbid obesity is a serious disease and must be treated as such. It is a chronic disease, meaning that its symptoms build slowly over an extended period of time. If you are among those who fit into the morbid obesity category, you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery.
