Bariatrics - surgical treatment of obesity.
All obesity surgery is based on two principles-the first is the restriction of food portions. Bariatric surgery is an intervention in the digestive system that reduces the volume of the stomach in order to reduce and prevent weight comeback. As a result, the patient feels full when he eats several times but less. The second principle on which obesity surgery is built is to limit calorie absorption. Operations where this method is used are called shunting. .Patient lose extra pounds successfully, as the weight approaches to the norm, the patient feels relief or full recovery occurs with concomitant obesity diseases.
Why overweight needs to be treated.
Obesity is not an aesthetic problem: it is a recurrent chronic disease. According to WHO statistics, in 2016, at least 1.9 billion adults in the world faced overweight or obesity. The most common cause is an violation between calories and energy expenditure. People eat too much food, which contains a lot of fat and energy, and exercise little.
Weight gain leads to deterioration in quality of life. There is psychological discomfort, difficulties in relationship with the opposite sex. Abnormal body fat can interfere with conceptio and cause physical limitations.

When non-surgical methods fail, bariatric obesity treatment at our Center will help you solve the problem and achieve a lasting results.
