Bariatric Surgery in Oklahoma

Proper diet and exercise are not always effective methods to losing excessive weight. If you’re one of the 32.8% of adults in Oklahoma living with obesity, your health may require rapid and drastic weight loss, something that lifestyle changes can’t offer.

Deciding to undergo bariatric surgery in Oklahoma may be the wisest decision you’ve ever made for your health and well-being. Weight-loss surgery can help you lose a significant amount of weight in a shorter period of time while simultaneously reversing or preventing obesity-related health issues, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

Oklahoma is the 9th most obese state in country. By 2030, it is projected that over one million people in the state will suffer from heart disease associated with excessive weight. Many adults, children, and teenagers suffer from this disease, affecting their quality of life. Weight loss for obese or morbidly obese patients is nearly impossible without the help of a bariatric procedure.

Whether you’ve been overweight your whole life or became overweight over time, there is a procedure that is suitable for your body and current health status that will help you keep the excess weight off and reverse your existing health conditions that are making your weight-loss journey even more necessary.
