Bariatric surgery is a medical procedure designed to offer specific, fast and measurable results in weight loss. Being excessively overweight reduces self-esteem and poses a serious threat to health. Obesity worsens the patient’s quality of life and significantly shortens its duration. We have gathered the best specialists in our field and the best solutions, to offer our customers the most convenient steps to a healthy, beautiful and long life.
Bariatric surgeries are serious procedures, and most of them prompt lifetime changes in the patient’s body. For people who are overweight, it is often not enough to limit calories and reduce the amount of food consumed. When your stomach is full, your brain sends a signal to stop eating. The size of the stomach and levels of digestive hormones play a large role in this process. Bariatric surgery reduces the size of the stomach so the patient becomes full with less food.
But surgery is an invasive procedure with its own inherent risks. And it is still up to the patient to make better nutritional choices, so they get all the nutrients necessary for optimal health, without excess empty calories.
The greatest challenge to recovery after bariatric surgery is reduced mobility due to the trauma of surgery, and the removal of part of the patient’s stomach. At the same time, the patient is still obese, and the weight loss journey stretches months ahead. A patient recovering from bariatric surgery may need special equipment, like a Certhealth bariatric transport wheelchair.
Easy and maneuverable, wide and high quality, these wheelchairs provide the utmost comfort and convenience for both patient and caregiver. Order online, and call us if you experience difficulty choosing the right model.
