I feel quite privileged that you have taken a moment to learn more about our bariatric surgery program. I love what I do, because bariatric surgery is more than just weight loss surgery... it is health surgery, with the power to transform a life... your life!
Severe Obesity imposes a heavy burden on a human life. It strains your heart and can contribute to blocking the arteries and overloading the leg veins. It can make you short of breath during the day and reduce the oxygen level in your blood at night. It can interfere with the proper function of insulin and the regulation of blood sugar, resulting in diabetes. It can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a host of other medical problems. It can make you hurt from back and joint pain or from heartburn or gallbladder disease or skin irritation. It can reduce your chance of having children.
Obesity also imposes significant restrictions on many of the freedoms and simple pleasures of life, impacting where you can buy clothes, where you can sit, the activities you can enjoy with your spouse or children or friends, how well you sleep, how you travel, your social and job opportunities, even sometimes how you are perceived by others, and more. It can alter the way you feel about life, making you depressed or anxious. Finally, it can influence the way you feel about yourself.
However, with bariatric surgery, YOU HAVE THE POWER to change all this, not only by achieving a healthy weight, but by freeing yourself from many or all of your weight-related medical problems, reducing your risk of cancer, eliminating many of the restrictions on your life and improving the QUALITY of your life, the excellence of your life, the happiness and fun of your life.
It is an honor to be of service to our patients in this way and my staff and I are proud that we can offer this service to you. You see, we enjoy great satisfaction from your success. It is my conviction that you will not find a finer bariatric surgeon or a more compassionate bariatric program anywhere.
We have a vision for your future.
