Bariatric surgeon: Bariatric surgery has definitive indications, and patients have to fit the profile. The right candidate for gastric bypass surgeries have to be carefully screened by their physicians. See a bariatric surgeon to see if you are a proper patient from a physical and psychological prospective.

Absolutely: Bariatric surgery represents the single most effective therapy of losing weight and potentially resolving medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, high cholesterol etc… surgery should not be taken lightly. It is work, but worth the effort. Find a reputable surgeon with a good dietitian and after-care program willing to follow you and help you be successful for life.
