In 2007, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that nearly 25 percent of Wisconsin’s population was obese, and national figures estimate there are more than 63 million Americans who are considered obese.
Obesity is a growing problem in the U.S., and with it comes many health risks, like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. While diet and exercise is beneficial for everyone, sometimes weight-loss surgery is needed for those suffering from severe obesity.
Designated as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, Aspirus Bariatrics offers the latest weight-loss surgical options, including gastric bypass surgery.
Our highly skilled team of physicians has a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric surgery, and can help change your life – and in some cases save it.
