Obesity is an all-time disease

Venus of Willendorf– 22.000 BC

Obesity is an incurable disease but can be treated.

Sometimes surgery is necessary to resolve the overweight problem. This is called bariatric surgery or obesity surgery. If diets and other weight treatments have failed and you still need to lose a lot of weight for medical reasons, obesity surgery may be a good treatment option. Obesity surgery is the right choice if the risks of the surgery are lower than the health risks associated with long-term obesity.

There are several surgical techniques in the treatment of obesity to help you lose weight.

What is morbid obesity?

Morbid obesity means “being overweight” to the point that it affects health. The consequences of obesity are far greater than what is generally estimated: diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, orthopedic problems, respiratory problems, sleep apnea, a strong negative self-image, and depression are the most known. Various cancers are also more common in people with morbid obesity such as colon, breast, and prostate cancer.
