Potential Risks of Bariatric Surgery

There are risks and complications associated with all major surgical procedures, and severe obesity increases these risks.

It is of the utmost importance that you and your physician discuss the benefits, alternatives and all the possible risks of bariatric surgery to allow for an informed decision. You will have multiple opportunities to have these discussions with your surgeon prior to surgery.

Long-term weight loss varies for each patient and will depend upon diet, exercise and your adherence to post-operative dietary guidelines. There is not, and cannot be, any guarantee of an expected outcome; however, by choosing St. Alexius NewStart you have the advantage of:
