Is Weight Loss Surgery Right for Me?
More than one in every three adults in the United States is living with obesity, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and obesity counts among its co-morbidities some of the leading causes of preventable death in the country. Obesity costs Americans an estimated $147 billion dollars annually in healthcare expenses alone, while contributing to a variety of conditions that negatively impact quality of life, including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea, to name just a few.
Obesity can be caused by many factors besides diet and lifestyle, including genetics, food addiction, and other considerations. Many individuals who struggle with obesity consider weight loss surgery, but whether weight loss surgery is right for you is a complex, important, and very personal decision. However, if you’re sick and tired of struggling with obesity and its various effects on your health and lifestyle, changes to diet and exercise have failed to yield results, and your BMI is still greater than 30, then weight loss surgery may be right for you.
Long-Term Weight Loss is Within Your Reach
Many people who struggle with obesity feel that long-term weight loss is unachievable, especially if changes to diet and exercise have already failed them. However, long-term weight loss is possible with help from a safe and reputable weight loss surgery facility such as Blue Valley Hospital. With many surgical options available, including adjustable gastric band surgery and sleeve gastrectomy, the weight loss experts at Blue Valley Hospital can help you find the solution that’s perfect for you.
Surgical weight loss offers more benefits than simple weight reduction. Some patients experience*:
- Lowering cholesterol
- Decreasing high blood pressure

- Relief from sleep apnea
