Bariatric Surgery: Weight Loss Surgery in Michigan
With MidMichigan’s Surgical Weight Management Program, qualified patients who have been unsuccessful in the past with traditional weight loss methods find new hope. Research has shown that, with surgical assistance, patients typically lose 60 percent of excess weight in the first year following bariatric surgery. Even better, 90 percent of problems such as diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure and depression are resolved or controlled. Weight loss surgery has the potential to save lives.
If you meet these criteria and have struggled to lose weight, bariatric surgery may be an option for you.
