Treatment for Obesity

  1. Gastric Bypass (Malabsorptive) Surgery

    Gastric bypass surgery involves bypassing a part of the small intestine that absorbs nutrients. For this reason, these surgeries are referred to as malabsorptive procedures.

  2. Gastric Stapling (Restrictive) Surgery

    Gastric stapling surgery is a type of weight loss surgery that limits the amount of food a person can eat.

  3. Maintaining Weight Loss

    Keeping extra weight off requires effort and commitment, just as losing weight does.

  4. Medical Treatment for Obesity

    Medical treatment can help with weight loss if your own efforts are unsuccessful—or if you have a medical condition that makes it crucial to lose weight.

  5. Obesity Treatment Overview

    Whatever treatment plan a person follows, losing weight slowly will be more effective and healthy over the long term.

  6. Preventing Obesity

    Given the chronic diseases and conditions associated with obesity and the fact that obesity is difficult to treat, prevention is extremely important.
