Treatment for Obesity

  • Gastric Bypass (Malabsorptive) Surgery
    Gastric bypass surgery involves bypassing a part of the small intestine that absorbs nutrients. For this reason, these surgeries are referred to as malabsorptive procedures.
  • Gastric Stapling (Restrictive) Surgery
    Gastric stapling surgery is a type of weight loss surgery that limits the amount of food a person can eat.
  • Maintaining Weight Loss
    Keeping extra weight off requires effort and commitment, just as losing weight does.
  • Medical Treatment for Obesity
    Medical treatment can help with weight loss if your own efforts are unsuccessful—or if you have a medical condition that makes it crucial to lose weight.
  • Obesity Treatment Overview
    Whatever treatment plan a person follows, losing weight slowly will be more effective and healthy over the long term.
  • Preventing Obesity
    Given the chronic diseases and conditions associated with obesity and the fact that obesity is difficult to treat, prevention is extremely important.
