Comparing Obesity Treatment Options

There are many obesity treatment options, and the average bariatric patient will have tried nonsurgical treatments multiple times before considering surgery. When you watch this video, you’ll hear a bariatric surgeon discuss why diet and exercise don’t always work well for her patients.

She also covers the basics of weight loss medications, which may be helpful for some patients. However, these drugs do carry the risk of side effects. When these options aren’t enough, surgery might be considered, as long as the patient meets the eligibility criteria.

You can find out if gastric sleeve or gastric bypass surgery may be right for you by scheduling a consultation at a weight loss clinic in Houston. Call Bariatric Care Centers at (713) 339-1353.
