Wilmington Bariatric Surgery

MBSAQIP Accredited Weight Loss Surgery Services

Bariatric surgery has been recognized by the National Institutes 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.
