BARIATRIC SURGERY AND WEIGHT LOSS
There is still a common misconception that obesity is a “Cosmetic” issue, but the truth is that obesity is a medical problem. The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) and several National and International medical and scientific societies, now recognize obesity as a chronic progressive disease resulting from multiple environmental, physiological and genetic factors.
Living with obesity is extremely costly in terms of economics, individual health, longevity, and psychological well-being. Managing your weight is a life-long process that requires treatment, control and support.
Obesity is defined by having excess weight over your ideal body weight (IBW). It is usually categorized using a body mass index (BMI) calculation.
ACID REFLUX AND SWALLOWING PROBLEMS
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) or more commonly known as acid reflux and heartburn occurs when stomach acid or bile flows backwards up into the esophagus causing bothersome symptoms. The esophagus is the tube that connects the throat to the stomach. These reflux events are attributed to a weak esophageal sphincter that allows stomach acid to flow back.
Untreated, long-lasting and poorly controlled GERD can have serious adverse effects leading to severe inflammation of the esophagus, throat, stomach, lungs, vocal cords and it can even become a risk factor for esophageal cancer – the fastest growing cancer in America-. When symptoms occur often or are not controlled despite treatment, medical advice should be considered.
Incredible strides have been made in recent medical technology allowing for the proliferation of minimally invasive surgical procedures. These advances have alleviated the fears surrounding surgery for many such as large scars, long recovery times, and surgical error. For these reasons and many more robotized minimally-invasive surgical systems are becoming rapidly adopted by surgeons and medical schools alike across the country. The future is now, and with the help of these advances in surgical technology, we can craft a healthier and brighter future for all patients.
