Solutions for Morbid Obesity
The best way to reduce the health risks associated with morbid obesity is to lose weight; however, doing so can be difficult because excess weight impairs mobility, making strenuous exercise impractical. You may have tried weight loss programs of diet and exercise that failed to control your weight over the long term, leading to frustration and depression. Studies show that these options fail to enable long-term weight control for 95 percent of people with morbid obesity.
Surgical options, such as gastric bypass surgery, the gastric sleeve and placement of the LAP-BAND® System, have been shown to improve weight loss success rates greatly. To help you succeed in your weight loss goals, we provide comprehensive support, including counseling, support groups, and personalized exercise and meal plans through the Winthrop Surgical Weight Loss Program.
