About Bariatric Surgery
Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about transforming your life. Obesity can lead to many health concerns, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea and heart disease. If you meet the qualifications and decide to undergo weight loss surgery in Ontario to address obesity, you stand to enhance everything that matters to you: your health, your relationships, your self-esteem, your work, and your overall outlook on life.
Choosing the right bariatric procedure is the most critical decision that you and your surgeon have to make. It is a common misconception that you should get the easiest procedure to minimize any potential complications, or maybe the most advanced to achieve the best results, but that’s not always true! There are several factors that play an important role in ensuring that a certain procedure is the best for you.
Our philosophy is to benefit you from your first visit and educate you about your best choice. As such, we believe that you should have the right to see your surgeon from the first appointment to discuss your current weight, obesity history, related health diseases, eating habits, and previous attempts to lose weight.
In the end, it is YOU who will make the decision, but only after obtaining all needed information and advice from your surgeon right from the first visit!
