CONDITIONS

Obesity

Obesity is a condition in which a person’s body mass index (BMI) is 30.0 or above due to excessive body fat. This condition raises a person’s risk of other health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke and even some cancers. While certain genetic factors can predispose a person to becoming obese, the primary cause of this chronic condition is having a sedentary lifestyle in which more calories are ingested than the body needs to carry out daily activities. Our physicians help obese and overweight patients to take control of their weight through comprehensive wellness programs that emphasize a proper diet, regular exercise and keeping control of co-existing conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. When necessary, advanced surgical treatments for obesity may also be considered – including gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band surgery, biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch procedures, and more.
