The decision to have a weight loss surgery should be made carefully. It should be made only with a full understanding of the risks and benefits of the procedure, the knowledge and willingness to accept the lifestyle changes imposed by the procedure and committing to life-long follow-up diet. ?Obesity and obesity-related illnesses such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease, and several forms of cancer are increasing at alarming rates in many countries around the globe. Following weight loss surgery, patients experience improvement in obesity-related illnesses, and the risk of early death is diminished. For seriously obese patients who have been unsuccessful in non-surgical weight loss methods such as diets, medications, behavior modification, or exercise programs, weight loss surgery may be a life-saving intervention. That is, for many patients, the risks of remaining obese are more significant than the risks of problems from weight loss surgery.
Patients whose BMI is 35-40, or exceeding 40 are candidates for surgery. These patients have induced physical issues-musculoskeletal or neurological or serious body size problems precluding or interfering with daily lifestyle, family function, employment and/or ambulation. Your physicians at the Medici Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico will assist you with your Bariatric Surgery decisions.
