Obesity/ Weight Loss Surgery Manhattan, NYC
Obesity is a serious problem for many Americans because it is so dangerous for their health. Weight loss surgery is a valid and popular option for many people suffering from morbid obesity. Morbid obesity is classified as a person who is 100lbs. over their ideal body weight or has a Body Mass Index of 40 or greater. Dr. John L. Holup, DO of the Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, NYC specializes in performing Bariatric Surgery and he can help you.
The American Society for Bariatric Surgery describes two basic approaches that weight loss surgery is used to accomplish: One, as restrictive procedures that decrease food intake. Second, as malabsorptive procedures that alter digestion, thus causing the food to be poorly digested and incompletely absorbed so that it is eliminated in the stool.
People living with morbid obesity can or may already be suffering from the following problems:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- High blood pressure and heart disease
- Osteoarthritis of weight-bearing joints
- Sleep apnea/ respiratory problems
- Gastroesophageal reflux/Heartburn
- Urinary stress incontinence
- Menstrual irregularities
Dr. Holup is a Bariatric Surgical Specialist with an advanced training in Surgical Laparoscopy, and he has performed well over 500 Bariatric cases, both open minimally invasive and laparoscopic. He is highly-regarded for his short and long term success with his patients. He lectures on an array of surgical problems, and is a member of the American College of Surgeons in addition to the American Society of General Surgeons, the Society of Laparoscopic Surgeons and the American Society for Bariatric Surgery.
If weight loss surgery is what you need to help save your health, then you should contact Dr. Holup of the Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, NYC.
