Obesity impacts the lives of about one-third of adults in the United States. In fact, it significantly increases the risk for diabetes, sleep apnea, back pain, stress, high blood pressure, stroke, high cholesterol and other conditions. For many people, weight loss surgery can make a difference.
At Doctors Community Hospital, we combine innovative surgical options with comprehensive support to help people battle obesity. With innovative bariatric surgeries like Lap-Band and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, many people have lost weight and improved the quality of their lives. Some people have even decreased or eliminated their dependence on diabetes, high blood pressure and other medications!
Doctors Community Hospital is the first hospital in Prince George’s County to provide bariatric surgeries using the daVinci® robot. This option often results in reduced scarring, pain and hospital stays.
If you are an adult who is at least 30 pounds overweight, attend Doctors Community Hospital’s free seminar on October 7 at 6:00 p.m. to learn if weight loss surgery is right for you.
