Diseases Treated by Weight Loss

Diseases Treated with Weight Loss Surgery

Unfortunately, severely obese individuals are at significantly higher risk of developing severe, even life-threatening medical conditions that can seriously undermine their health, quality of life, and even, unfortunately, their life expectancy.* For many years, the medical community assumed that obesity is the fundamental cause of these health problems, and focused on encouraging weight loss with diet and exercise while simply treating each individual health problem on its own. Today, we understand that the relationships between these diseases and obesity—taken together, named “metabolic syndrome”—is far more complex, usually mutually reinforcing, and very often misunderstood. Luckily, over the past decade, medical science has also both developed a better understanding of how obesity and common health problems alter the body’s hormonal and metabolic balance and has formulated better medical and surgical options for addressing obesity and related health problems!

At The Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery, in Maitland, Florida, our goal is to offer you the knowledge you need to understand the complex relationships between common health problems and obesity, as well as the options available for addressing those problems. For many individuals, cutting-edge metabolic and bariatric surgical techniques, when performed by a talented, experienced, Board Certified surgeon like Dr. Wiljon Beltre, offer the safest, most effective way to correct your body’s hormonal and metabolic imbalances in order to achieve significant weight loss, allow healthy lifestyle choices to have the effect they are meant to have, and improve your overall health and well-being.**

As you begin to develop a better understanding of bariatric or metabolic surgery and whether it is appropriate for you, we encourage you to take the time to understand what is at the heart of some of these common obesity-related health problems, and learn how metabolic and bariatric surgery can, in many cases, offer nearly-immediate relief!

At your initial consultation with Dr. Beltre, we will conduct a thorough medical evaluation to determine if, and how, metabolic syndrome and its underlying conditions is undermining your health and well-being. We will work closely with you to help you understand whether metabolic surgery is the right step for you, and if it is, which type of surgery is most appropriate to address your unique medical needs. Dr. Beltre and his team of weight loss experts will also help you understand the type of lifestyle changes your surgery will require, and will work hand-in-hand with you to develop a comprehensive, personalized, long-term weight loss plan that is custom-tailored to maximize your changes of ensuring successful weight loss and resolution of your most pressing medical conditions.
