Bariatric surgery is a life-changing decision. We provide weight loss treatment for the greater Dallas area at North Texas Bariatric & General Surgery, P.A.
BARBARA MOOREHEAD: Some people ask, is weight loss surgery for me? This is a life changing decision. For many individuals who are morbidly obese, surgery is the only method that helps them successfully control their weight. Lap-band and the gastric sleeve resection surgeries promote weight loss by decreasing food intake. We at North Texas Bariatric promote proper food selection and some type of regular exercise. Some questions when considering bariatric surgery are have I exhausted all non-surgical measures? If so, bariatric surgery offers an effective approach to help regain your health by losing significant weight. Am I well informed about the available surgical procedures and effects of the treatments? If not, go to various lectures, websites, and physicians until you are certain with your choices. Am I determined to lose weight and improve my health? Can I maintain a lifelong commitment to medical follow-up?
