What is Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatric surgery is an option to alleviate debilitating diseases caused by morbid obesity. Patients who intend to undergo this surgery must be highly motivated. They must be able to adhere to diet, exercise, and medical guidelines for the rest of their lives after surgery.

Surgery, together with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet and daily exercise, will help someone lose weight and maintain the weight loss. Following the guidelines about food choices and level of physical activity is very important. Behavioral therapy focuses on behaviors that get in the way of losing and keeping off weight.
