Morbid obesity is now recognized, by the general population, as a contributor to many health problems, including heart disease, vascular diseases, venous insufficiencies, diabetes mellitus, hypertension (high blood pressure), various skin conditions, and many others. As the surgical options such as weight reduction surgery, or bariatric surgery become safer and available to people who are morbidly obese, the resultant skin excess can cause many other problems or issues for these people. Physical problems include chronic skin irritation, or intertrigo, which can result in hyperpigmentation (skin darkening) and even ulcerations. Most are much happier with the massive weight loss, but now are afflicted with the large amount of skin excess, and this itself can be a cause of psychological stress.
We offer a Multidisciplinary approach with the Nutriologist, General Surgeon and Endoscopic Surgeon to Help our patients to lose weight and prepare them for a series of Surgeries after the massive lost of weight.
We provide the following Surgeries:
- Gastric By pass(only in extreme cases)
- Lap Band (the most common Bariatric Surgery)
