A healthier you is waiting to emerge
If you are 100 pounds or more overweight, you could be facing serious health risks. If you have tried to lose weight through diet and exercise and you just can’t, bariatric surgery might be a good option. Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center offers bariatric surgery and a weight-loss program that includes:
- Three types of bariatric surgery: gastric sleeve procedure, gastric bypass and gastric banding
- Access to an integrated staff and professionals, including physicians, nursing staff, a patient coordinator, patient counselors and dietitians
- A comprehensive weight-loss program designed just for you that involves diet, exercise, psychological counseling and other lifestyle changes
Bariatric surgery offers hope and help to those who have tried repeatedly to lose excess weight and keep it off. Gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and gastric banding are major surgical procedures entailing all the normal risks of surgery.
There are many other health benefits to bariatric surgery. The weight loss can help resolve pre-existing medical conditions usually related to obesity, such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, joint pain and acid reflux.
