Gastric Sleeve Surgery
GASTRIC SLEEVE SURGERY IN MIAMI
It’s no secret that Obesity is one of the greatest public health threats in the United States. Over 72 million Americans are obese. This is particularly concerning given that obesity is also one of the primary causes of preventable death in the US.
Yet many people still struggle to keep weight off. In the case of those for whom diet and exercise is not enough, having a gastric sleeve surgery performed can be an excellent solution. Studies have consistently shown that bariatric surgery is the most effective and long-lasting treatment for obesity.
According to Robin Blackstone, MD, President of ASMBS, “Sleeve gastrectomy has proven itself to be a safe and effective option in patients with morbid obesity and this procedure should be considered a primary procedure for weight loss and obesity-related disease improvement and resolution.”
