Morbid obesity is a disease that affects millions of people in the United States, and the effects are almost always devastating. Recognized since 1985 as a chronic disease, obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death exceeded only by cigarette smoking. Obesity has also been established as a major risk factor for hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and some cancers in both men and women.
Although there is no medical cure for morbid obesity, there is an effective treatment. Weight loss surgery, when combined with behavior modification, is an extremely effective method of achieving long-term weight loss for the morbidly obese.
