One of the biggest reasons we do weight loss surgery isn’t just to lose weight but to affect any of the other medical conditions the patient may have. Diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, arthritis, all these things are directly related to weight. Once the weight comes down, then we can expect improvement and, in many cases, even complete resolution of a lot of these medical problems.
