When struggling with obesity, significant weight loss is important for long-term health. Bariatric surgery helps limit food intake and absorption, and it allows for the maintenance of long-term, healthy weight loss goals. These types of weight loss procedures can dramatically improve and control diseases like diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and joint pain.
