As a result of morbid obesity simple physical functions such as breathing and walking are often impaired and long-term implications often include shorter life expectancy, serious health consequences including type 2 diabetes and heart disease, and a lower quality of life with fewer economic and social opportunities.
For those living with morbid obesity, bariatric surgery should be considered as a method of treatment—especially for those who have tried other long-term methods for weight loss and achieved no success. Often referred to as weight loss surgery, bariatric surgery has changed the lives of more than 800,000 patients within the last six years.
