Bariatric Surgery Northern California
At Healthy Steps Bariatric and Metabolic Center, we understand the physical, social and emotional difficulties that people face because of their weight.
If you are obese, losing weight is not a cosmetic concern; it is an essential step to restoring your health and enabling you to function normally.
Bariatric surgery is known to be the most effective and long lasting treatment for morbid obesity and many related conditions. At Healthy Steps Bariatric and Metabolic Center we know that this surgery can deliver life-changing and even life-saving results.
According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery in 2009, an estimated 220,000 people in the U.S. had bariatric surgery. About 15 million, or 1 in 50 adults in the U.S. have morbid obesity, which is associated with more than 30 other diseases and conditions including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, hypertension, asthma, cancer, joint problems and infertility.
