Go From Obese to...OMG!

About Us

Perhaps America’s most serious public health concern in the 21st century is the increasing incidence of obesity.  Medical research continues to unravel the many causes and consequences of a population with growing waistlines while politicians and economists debate the social and financial repercussions.  The medical problems that have been linked to obesity include serious, chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease - all of which can diminish a patient's quality of life (at best) or lead to an early death (at worst).  Unfortunately, the likelihood of developing an obesity-related comorbidity increases as a person’s weight increases.

At GastricSurgeon.com, we strive to provide patients with current, accurate, and unbiased information about surgical weight loss options and alternatives.
