“The evidence continues to mount and our real-world experience continues to show bariatric surgery not only prevents, resolves, and improves obesity-related diseases, but also extends life.”
“It continues to amaze me that with all those proof, only between 1 and 2 percent of patients with severe obesity in the United States have bariatric surgery.
This needs to change.”
- Samer Mattar, MD, President, American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and Medical Director, Swedish Weight Loss Services in Seattle, Washington
