The Benefits of Bariatric Surgery
The South Carolina Obesity Surgery Center at Lexington Medical Center is helping people lose more weight than was once thought possible.
Bariatric surgery typically results in 60 percent excess weight loss within the ﬁrst eight months. Bariatric surgery can drastically increase energy levels and help control weight-aggravated conditions such as heart disease, high cholesterol, degenerative arthritis and sleep apnea. Signiﬁcant weight loss is also likely to alleviate a patient’s need for insulin and blood pressure medications.
