Where to Begin
This website is a good place to start. It has been created to give you a thorough understanding of the risks and benefits of this weight loss procedure. Talking to your primary care physician, physician specialist, or family physician is a good next step. Finding a local Bariatric Surgeon and support group is another good step. You can locate a surgeon in your area by visiting Find a Physician or visiting Meet Your Bariatric Surgery Team section.
Remember, there is much misinformation about weight loss surgery that you may encounter from unqualified sources. Talking to others who have taken the path you are now considering may help you understand what you need to know to make a decision you can be comfortable with. In the end, your best source of information is an experienced Bariatric surgeon who knows how to handle your special needs before, during and after weight loss surgery.
