Achieving and maintaining your optimal weight is a key to physical and emotional wellbeing, and St. Mary's offers a wealth of resources designed to help patients reach their goals.
Changes in diet and lifestyle, which form the core of successful weight-loss plans, aren't always enough. For people with morbid obesity or other metabolic health issues such as Type 2 diabetes, weight-loss surgery, technically known as bariatric surgery, may be the best option when all else fails. Studies show that people who undergo weight loss surgery extend their life expectancy. In most cases, their weight-related ailments disappear, eliminating their need for medications to treat such problems as diabetes, high blood pressure, snoring and sleep apnea. They feel better, look better, and are able to lead more active and rewarding lives.
Bariatric surgery can not only give you a slimmer physique – it can be crucial to lowering your risk of life-threatening health conditions. For many overweight men and women, weight-loss surgery is often the best and safest option for long-term weight loss. Bariatric surgery can help lower blood sugar, eliminate the need for medications, and improve diabetes-related health problems in people affected by obesity. Surgical procedures we perform in San Francisco include sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding, and gastric bypass.
