Most of us have heard it….the naysayers, the critics. They will tell you that weight loss surgery is the easy way out. They will tell you that it is just a short term fix. But here is the thing- that’s just not true. And we have the research to back it up.

A study published on August 31st in JAMA found that most participants who underwent gastric bypass maintained a significant weight loss ten years after the surgery. Close to 97% of the surgical participants maintained an almost 100 pound weight loss while virtually all the non-surgical participants were the same weight after ten years. Read more about this research at NPR.

So for any of you questioning if bariatric surgery is right for you, look at the research and attend one of our free informational seminars.
