Weight loss surgery solutions—when diet and exercise just aren't cutting it

If you're struggling with obesity and your weight has been unresponsive to diet and exercise, you may qualify for bariatric surgery. People who opt for bariatric surgery are consistently and reliably able to lose 50 to 90 percent of their excess weight—and achieve long-term results unmatched by typical weight loss programs.
