Weight Loss Surgery Options

Diet and exercise have long been considered the only effective way to lose weight. But in recent years, a third way—surgery—has emerged for certain men and women who are severely obese. This option, known as bariatric surgery, can result in dramatic weight loss. Weight Loss Surgery Options is an online health resource administered by a professional staff of surgeons, dieticians and counselors. It is a comprehensive resource for those seeking more information about weight loss surgery. The site features both article and video formats to answer questions the pre-operative patient may be asking.

For answers to these questions read the article, "When Dieting is a Bust: Surgical Options for Weight Loss"
