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.
