When it comes to losing those extra pounds, diet and exercise can work for a handful of obese patients.
However some patients are finding surgical weight loss to be helpful in their goal to lose weight. Three surgical weight loss procedures are available at with Dr. Tim Wheeler at King’s Daughters Medical Center: Roux-en-y gastric bypass, lap-adjusted gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy.
These weight loss procedures can help reduce serious conditions associated with obesity, including:
• heart and breathing problems
• high blood pressure
• high cholesterol
