If you’ve ever struggled with long-term weight loss, take a moment and think about your dream for the future. What does it look like? Maybe it’s finishing that half marathon you’ve always wanted to try. Or keeping up with the kids on their long bike rides through the neighborhood. Or maybe, it’s as simple as waking up happy and healthy every morning. My New Beginning, which is part of Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake, wants to help patients turn their dreams into reality.
People who are morbidly obese are at a much greater risk of developing a variety of serious medical conditions compared to individuals who are not obese. Bariatric surgery can give patients a fresh start and many happy years down the road – and also prevent the development of a number of serious health conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, stroke, arthritis, bladder problems, asthma, and obstructive sleep apnea.
Patients must meet certain criteria to quality for bariatric surgery. Some of these requirements include being 18 years or older and either morbidly obese or obese with associated complications, having tried unsuccessfully to lose weight through a structured, medical weight loss program that included diet, exercise and lifestyle changes.
My New Beginning offers five surgical options for weight loss, including Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, gastric band or LAP-BAND®, sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch, and revision surgery.
