Don't Believe These Myths About Bariatrics

Increasingly, bariatric surgery is being recognized as an effective tool to manage various diseases associated with obesity, including diabetes, heart disease, and sleep apnea. Yet, many myths persist about bariatrics. When you watch this video, you’ll hear from Jamie Dukes, a former professional football player.

Jamie debunks the myth that bariatric surgery has a high mortality rate (actually, it’s far lower than the mortality rate of gallbladder surgery). He also explains how he learned to move past the stigma of obesity.

Dr. Brian Mirza is a bariatric surgeon in Houston who is known for his compassionate care and excellent patient support services. You can call Bariatric Care Centers at (713) 339-1353 to request a consultation.
