Wilmington Bariatric Surgery
MBSAQIP Accredited Weight Loss Surgery Services
Bariatric surgery has been recognized by the National Institute of Health
as an effective treatment for obesity and its life-threatening side effects.
There are certain social stigmas around weight loss surgery, but there
are some things you should understand. Weight loss surgery is a well-researched
and respected medical treatment. Bariatric surgeons do not recommend the
operation based on a perceived deficiency in physical appearance; the
dangers of severe obesity can have a serious impact on one’s health,
and weight loss surgery can be one step in a progressive treatment plan
to help patients reach a new level of physical health.
