Weight Loss Q&A

What are the health complications associated with obesity?

Obesity is associated with a range of health complications and can increase your risk for medical conditions, such as:

  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Heart attack
  • Osteoarthritis

Extra weight puts extra pressure and stress on your muscles, bones, and organs that can also lead to problems, including inflammation and arthritis in certain joints.

How does medical weight loss work?

With medical weight loss, you’ll have regular scheduled visits and checkups. Medical weight loss combines a variety of effective treatments, including:

  • Medications
  • Nutrition training
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Bariatric surgery, or gastric bypass
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitative exercise
  • A medical support system available to answer your questions
  • Medical care for any additional health complications you might have or that occur as a result of excess weight

Some people opt for alternative ways to lose weight and relieve any pain, muscle strain, and joint inflammation associated with excess weight. Some of these alternative therapies include:

  • Yoga
  • Massage
  • Acupuncture

Many alternative approaches promote healing, the release of toxins, a reduction of inflammation, and muscle strengthening.

The Modern Concepts Medical Group has years of experience in providing bariatric surgery, also known as gastric bypass. If you’re interested in bariatric surgery, you’ll need to be evaluated to determine if you’re a good candidate.

The Modern Concepts Medical Group makes the paperwork and process of preparing for bariatric surgery as easy and efficient as possible, so you can undergo your procedure and recovery to enjoy the results sooner.
