Gastric Bypass Surgery for Weight Loss
(Also Called 'Lap Adjustable Gastric Banding', 'Lap Sleeve Gastrectomy', 'Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery', 'Obesity Surgery')
Each year, more than 400,000 deaths in the United States are linked to obesity. Today, clinicians realize obesity is a chronic condition requiring long-term lifestyle changes.
Cleveland Clinic's Bariatric and Metabolic Institute may offer a solution with surgical weight loss. The extensive evaluation process involves working with a team of specialists, including an endocrinologist, nutrition therapist, psychologist, nurse and surgeon.
Along with careful follow-up, monthly informational meetings and support groups to meet individual needs complement this process.
