TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE
It’s time to restore your health and regain confidence with a long-term weight-loss solution.
If you’re 100 pounds or more overweight, you may be a candidate for weight-loss surgery. The reasons are more than cosmetic. Obesity related health conditions, whether alone or in combination, may significantly reduce life expectancy.
Here is a partial list of the more common conditions:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- High Blood Pressure/Heart Disease
- Osteoarthritis of Weight Bearing Joints
- Sleep Apnea/Respiratory Problems
- Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease/Heartburn
- Some Cancers
Weight-loss surgery can help you successfully reach a healthier weight and give you the opportunity to live a longer, healthier and more active life.
Did you know that weight loss surgery is often a covered benefit? Most insurances cover Bariatric Surgery if you meet certain criteria and follow certain guidelines to be approved. After attending a seminar and turning in your application, we will check your insurance coverage in order to determine whether you have benefits and what the guidelines are for your specific policy. We will help you every step of the way.
