FAQ'sTo Get Started Call 888.852.7226

What is the worst thing that can happen with weight loss surgery?

The worst thing that can happen is that someone could die, but the risk of surgery is much less than the risk of staying obese. It is very important to choose a bariatric surgeon that is a leader in the field and experienced in handling complications that can arise during obesity surgery, at the New York Bariatric Group, our specialists certainly meet these criteria. Potential complications include but are not limited to, the risk of anesthesia, infection, bleeding, blood clots, hernias, and wound complications. This is not a stated to frighten you, but to remind you that this is a big decision and not without risk.

Why consider surgery for obesity?

Obesity is a very serious medical disease. The alternative to living with obesity would not be any more of an option than living with treatable cancer or heart disease. There are many negative impacts of severe obesity on an individual’s life. Obesity can damage muscles, bones, and internal organs. The chance of heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, infertility, osteoarthritis, insufficiency, gall bladder disease, and certain types of cancer are increased by obesity. As your weight increases, the risk of medical problems also increase. There are also many social and psychological implications of being obese. Prejudice at school and at the workplace is not uncommon, and instances of depression increase in those affected by morbid obesity. Recent published studies show that severely overweight individuals have a life expectancy of ten years less than non-obese members of the population. The National Institute of Health had a consensus conference statement on morbid obesity and determined that surgery is the only effective means of weight loss for patients that suffer from morbid obesity. Gastric Bypass surgery can prevent progression and mortality associated with Type-2 Diabetes in morbidly obese adults. With medical weight loss most patients lose weight, only to relapse and regain their weight. Exercise and making better food choices are still important, but surgery is a great aid in helping patients reach their goals of living a longer and healthier life. At the New York Bariatric Group we go a step further, we believe that the most effective long term success in weight loss is achieved by exposing the patient to a multi-disciplinary team approach. We combine surgery with sound pre-surgery education and superior post-operative support, helping patients maximize their weight loss and adjust to the lifestyle change.

When should surgery be considered?

No patient should consider surgery unless they have failed multiple attempts at weight loss or other methods, only then is surgery a good option. There are many reasons for exploring surgery for obesity, some people have serious illnesses such as diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension, or degenerative joint disease caused by excess weight. For others, the primary motivation is the psychological impact the weight is having on their life. Whatever the reason, it is essential to realize that surgery for obesity is a major operation that can have complications. The first step in considering any kind of surgery should always be self-education. We have created many patient education tools that can be found on our website. If you meet the criteria for weight loss surgery your next step should be to register for one of our free seminars held each month throughout the metropolitan New York/Long Island area or online on our website.

How can surgery make me lose weight?

There are two ways the gastrointestinal track can be altered to cause weight loss. The stomach can be made smaller so the person feels more full after eating less food, the second mechanism is bypassing a portion of the intestines that the food comes in contact with, as a result you do not absorb all of the calories that you eat thus malabsorption occurs. Different operations use these two mechanisms in various ways, some operations are pure gastric restrictive procedures, and many others combine gastric restriction with moderate malabsorption. It is important to realize that there is no perfect operation, which is why we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of all potential procedures with our patients. Together we can decide which best addresses your particular needs.

What are the risks of surgery?

We wish to emphasize to our patients, that all Bariatric operations are major procedures and have serious risks. The national average mortality rate for gastric bypass surgery is 0.5% or 1 in 200. For Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding the risk is 0.05% or only 1 in 2,000. Major early complications are rare but include leaking of intestinal contents causing infection and requiring additional surgery. Other risks include bleeding, blood clots, and any other complications that may occur after major gastric surgery. Wound complications, infections, and hernias are also rare but can occur. Additionally there is the risk of malnutrition and vitamin deficiency with gastric bypass surgery. While most of these issues rarely arise, the major point is that these procedures should only be done when necessary and by doctors who have experience in this area.
