Obesity is on the rise, in children and adults. It affects people in a myriad of ways. Besides the struggle to physically get around, obesity can cause serious health issues, social anxiety, isolation, depression and other emotional problems. For persons who are considered morbidly obese-generally those who are 100 pounds or more overweight-all of these problems escalate.
Weight loss surgery-or bariatric surgery-can be a big step toward a new life, but it's just one of many steps on your journey to a fuller, healthier and more satisfying lifestyle. Losing weight through surgery requires a serious, lifelong commitment to changing the way you eat, exercise, and think. It requires a whole new way of approaching life every day.
The good news is that you don't have to do it alone.
The bariatric surgery team at WakeMed Physician Practices General Surgery helps you every step of the way, from nutrition and dietary guidance, to exercise plans, payment options, the actual surgery, and then to support groups to keep you on track. You will have your own personal navigator to guide you through the entire process from start to finish, who will provide you with resources, advocate for you and coach you to success.
Some people choose to undergo weight loss surgery so they can get diabetes or other health problems under control. Some make this lifestyle change so they can be active with the children, grandchildren or other loved ones. Whatever drives your decision, know that the team at WakeMed Physician Practices General Surgery understands the importance and significance of your decision.
At WakeMed Cary Hospital, we offer the most comfortable, technologically advanced, caring and supportive environment for bariatric surgery in the region.
