Obesity is a chronic disorder that can lead to other health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obstructive sleep apnea. Because obesity can affect many organs, it may be difficult to treat. When other medically supervised methods of weight loss have failed, weight loss surgery can be an effective way to lose weight and maintain that weight loss.
At Conway Medical Center, we understand the challenges obesity causes. That’s why we created a program to help people with severe obesity overcome their problems due to extra pounds. If you are 100 pounds or more over your ideal weight or have a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 40, weight loss surgery may be the best solution for you.
