    Benefits of Bariatric Surgery

    Bariatric surgery frequently results in 60 percent excess weight loss within the first eight months. The end result often means drastically increased energy levels and control of weight-aggravated conditions such as heart disease, high cholesterol, degenerative arthritis and sleep apnea. Significant weight loss can also alleviate the need for insulin and blood pressure medication.
