Bariatric Surgery

Transform Your Health: The Path to Bariatric Surgery with Surgical Associates

In the United States, the battle against morbid obesity is more critical than ever. With projections suggesting that half of the U.S. population could be affected by obesity by 2030, the need for effective, long-term solutions is undeniable. Morbid obesity, characterized by a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 40, or a BMI of 35 with associated co-morbidities, lays the groundwork for a myriad of health issues, including diabetes, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, hyperlipidemia, joint problems, and more. At Surgical Associates, we offer a beacon of hope: bariatric surgery, a transformative procedure designed to help you achieve and maintain a healthier weight and lifestyle.
