Bariatric surgery enables overweight and obese people the chance to achieve significant and long-term weight loss leading to a happier and healthier you.

Of the many benefits from bariatric surgery, some of the most notable include:

JOINT PAIN RELIEF | Excessive weight puts a lot of stress on your joints and causes damage over time which leads to pain. Significant weight loss can alleviate pain, allow people to stop using pain medications and become more mobile.

BLOOD PRESSURE | Reduced weight can improve your risk of heart disease and stroke. Blood pressure and cholesterol levels are usually reduced after weight loss helping patients return to better overall health.

DEPRESSION | People with excess weight may find it difficult to participate in certain activities. Losing excess weight leads to increased activity as well as helping improve a person’s emotional health.

“Bariatric surgery gives patients the best chance at maintaining their weight loss over time, and that plays a significant role in a patients overall health,” said Dr. Dominick Artuso, a leading bariatric surgeon at St. John's Riverside Hospital.

Improved sleep, better outcomes from Type 2 diabetes and reduced risk of many other medical conditions are all additional benefits of bariatric surgery.
