Obesity is a multifaceted, chronic and progressive disease. Many people think “Eat Less, Exercise More” is the only thing that needs to be done to lose weight.
Those folks are wrong! Medical Bariatrics is the nonsurgical treatment of obesity by a health professional trained in addressing the many different factors that contribute to the problem of obesity for effective treatment and long-term success. Weight loss is only part of the treatment plan. Maintenance of healthy weight over the long-term is truly the goal of treatment. Without the help of a Bariatrician and long-term treatment, the risk of regain is over 90%!
