Sometimes, bariatric surgery isn’t the first or best treatment option for excessive weight. In fact, several underlying medical causes can contribute to weight gain or prevent you from having success with your diet and exercise plan.
These can include:
Some of these are “silent diseases,” so it is important to see your primary care physician or a bariatric surgeon for a checkup. At Baylor Plano, our bariatric staff can help identify these underlying medical problems, and help you get the treatment you need. The bariatric specialists on our medical staff can also recommend an eating and activity program that may help you succeed.
Taking a step to surgery – including bariatric surgery – is a big decision. At Baylor Plano, we want you to feel confident that your steps toward weight loss are the right ones. In the end, surgical weight loss may really help you. In the meantime, you can feel confident that our experienced staff will help you consider all your medical, nonsurgical options.
