Surgical Weight-Loss | Take Control of Your Life
Studies by the Surgical Review Corporation show that approximately 23 million individuals in the United States are considered morbidly obese. In fact, the National Institutes on Health estimate that approximately 300,000 individuals die each year due to obesity-related health conditions. Fortunately, MountainView Hospital of Las Vegas has been taking great measures to reduce obesity rates and obesity-associated health risks.
Losing weight affects an individual’s health in many ways, including improving mobility, providing more energy to carry out daily activities, and increasing an individual’s chances for a longer, healthier life. Losing weight also helps obese individuals reduce their chances of experiencing several detrimental health conditions, including:
- Type II diabetes
- Hypertension or high blood pressure
- Coronary heart disease
- Liver and gallbladder disease
- Endometrial, colon, and breast cancers
- Dyslipidemia or high levels of triglycerides and total cholesterol
- Abnormal menstrual cycles, infertility, and other gynecological problems
- Respiratory problems, such as sleep apnea
While diet and exercise are some of the best ways to lose weight and promote a healthier lifestyle, our physicians and medical staff members at MountainView Hospital understand that some individuals require more additional help. That’s why we provide some of the most advanced bariatric weight-loss surgery methods and robotic procedures available. In fact, MountainView Hospital has performed more than 500 bariatric weight-loss surgeries in Las Vegas since 2002.
Our Surgical Weight Loss Center not only provides some of the most qualified bariatric weight loss procedures available, but it has also been named a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
