Weight Loss Surgery News

A recent study completed in December 2014 by the Veterans Affairs office shows further evidence that obese patients that have bariatric surgery live longer than those who do not.

The abstract (available here) states:

The latest government report says nearly one in six young people tip the scales as obese. But ask moms and dads instead, and you might get a different story. Nearly half of parents underestimate heavy kids' weight, a new study finds.

No parent wants to label a child "fat". However, failing to face the truth can have real consequences for your son of daughter's health. After all, if you don't see your child's problem, you're less likely to search for a solution.

A recent study published in the journal Obesity Surgery examined information from over 50,000 patients and determined that patients who had weight loss surgery had a lower incident of cancer than obese patients who did not have the surgery. While these findings are still early, they show promise and provide an area for further studies.

The June 2014 edition of JAMA Surgery the findings of two new studies on obesity, diabetes, and weight loss surgery was published. The two studies, carried out at the University of Pittsburgh and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, both show dramatic reduction of diabetic symptoms. In some cases, the diabetes completely disappeared.

Another study has been performed that adds to the growing evidence that weight loss surger like gastric bypass, lap band, and others has profound benefits for people suffering from diabetes.

Dr. Oz recently featured the Lap-Band weight loss surgery procedure on his television show. With the help of his guests, Dr. Oz discussed the FDA's recently reduced requirements for bariatric surgery and how it has opened the door to a healthy new life for individuals unable to loose weight.

Rosie O'Donnell has lost over 40 pounds following weight loss surgery. According to "People" magazine, Rosie chose weight loss surgery to "save her life". With the numerous health studies that show benefits to conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and others; it is no mystery why Rosie decided to address her health issue head on with bariatric surgery.

Governor Chris Christie from New Jersey continues to be a shining example of how weight loss surgery can be the spark that starts you on a journey to a healthy new lifestyle. NBC news recently published an article chronicling Christie's weight loss success.

NBC news with Brian Williams recently ran an interesting piece discussing how weight loss surgery may cure some forms of diabetes. Surgeries such as Gastric Bypass, Lap-Band, Realize Band, Gastric Sleeve, and Gastric Plication are all areas where the National Bariatric Center has a proven history of outstanding results.

Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic have observed long term benefits for those who suffer from Type 2 Diabetes. While this link was revealed before, this is one of the first long term studies to track diabetes patients who have had bariatric surgery. 



"I have lost 210 pounds since the start of my journey. What I liked so much about Dr. Chae is that he is a follow up guy, he makes sure that you understand everything about the procedure and that all your questions are answered."
