Every year, millions of Americans try countless combinations of diet and exercise to lose weight and keep it off. Unfortunately, only two percent will reach and maintain an ideal body weight. The rest will either fail to lose any weight at all or eventually gain their lost weight back.
Many of these Americans fall into the category of “morbidly obese,” a serious health threat that significantly increases your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure. These patients are often desperate to lose weight, but their bodies won’t let them. For these patients failure is simply not an option, no matter what the odds.
Most diets fail because you get hungry. We crave that full feeling and we will eat until we get it. It’s that simple. Kennedy Bariatrics offers a safe and effective medical solution to control unnecessary hunger and encourage your commitment to a healthier lifestyle.
Lead by Dr. Colleen Kennedy, a board certified bariatric surgeon specializing in laparoscopic procedures, Kennedy Bariatrics offers a comprehensive program designed to meet the medical, surgical, and emotional needs of severely overweight patients seeking surgical intervention.
Kennedy Bariatrics offers several types of weight loss surgery: the Lap-band, the gastric sleeve and the gastric bypass. Each of these procedures is performed laparoscopically. Laparoscopic surgeries are accomplished using a tiny incision and offer a lower complication rate, minimal downtime and minimal scarring.
Surgery should always be a last resort and weight loss surgery is not quick fix. But combined with a commitment to proper nutrition and exercise, these procedures offer a practical medical solution to help extend your life and improve its quality.
Enjoy life and all its rewards.
