What is Bariatrics?
Bariatrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the study and treatment of obesity. Preventing and treating obesity is important because obesity can lead to other life-threatening issues like:
- Heart disease
- Sleep apnea
- Type 2 diabetes
Oftentimes, a bariatric doctor will first try to treat their patient with diet, exercise, and behavioral therapy. However, if the case is severe, bariatric surgery may be suggested.
At Inspire Bariatrics, we offer several forms of bariatric surgery, including minimally invasive options.
Bariatric surgery with Inspire Bariatrics
All our surgeries are done as minimally invasive procedures using the Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgery System when possible. Weight loss surgery is effective on its own but keep in mind that life changes will need to be made to ensure that your weight loss surgery is 100% effective.
