Change your life for the better. Change your life for good with bariatric surgery.
No one has to tell you about the downside of morbid obesity. If you’re at least 100 pounds over your ideal body weight, you already know about the severe health risks. Not to mention the feelings of guilt, frustration, depression, and hopelessness that can be absolutely overwhelming.
Here at Pacific Bariatric, our goal is to help you change your health and your life. Our guides help you determine and navigate the complete bariatric process including procedures, post-ops, pre-ops and much more. Create lasting weight loss and, as a result, reduce life-threatening risk factors, improve your self-esteem and enhance your daily living.
Pacific Bariatric is providing you with:
- Thorough and honest answers to all of your questions about gastric bypass, gastric sleeve surgery, revisional surgery and other bariatric procedures.
- Patient education and long-term follow-up care.
For many the decision to have bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, is met with both trepidation and relief. If you’ve struggled with weight loss for a very long time and nothing has worked it comes as a relief to know that you will finally see results. Bariatric surgery achieves weight loss by reducing the size of the stomach through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve surgery) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery) which is where most people’s trepidation comes in.
We hope we can relieve some of that trepidation as well. Long-term studies show bariatric surgery causes significant long-term loss of weight, recovery from diabetes, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, and a reduction in mortality of 23% from 40% source: N Engl J Med 2009; 361:520-521, not to mention numerous other benefits. If you have a body mass index (BMI) of at least 40 or a BMI of 35 with coexisting medical conditions such as diabetes the U.S. National Institutes of Health recommends bariatric surgery.
Research is also emerging that suggests bariatric surgery could be appropriate for individuals with a BMI of 35 to 40 with no coexisting medical conditions or a BMI of 30 to 35 with significant coexisting medical conditions. No one should have to live with morbid obesity. And, you don’t have to anymore.
If you are ready for the change, perhaps it’s time to consider a surgical solution that has helped thousands of others. Perhaps it’s time to find your bariatric surgeon.
