While the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports obesity affects more than one-third of all U.S. adults, it really hits home when it affects you. If you’re struggling, especially when your weight makes it difficult to exercise and diet, it may be time for another approach.

The options below vary on a case-by-case basis. Your surgeon will discuss if you qualify and determine the surgery that is best for you.
