Bariatric surgery has proven to be not only the most successful method for weight loss, but is also responsible for the resolution or improvement of many other serious medical problems. For example, studies have shown a resolution of Diabetes in 83% of patients, and an 82% risk reduction for cardiovascular disease. Gastroesophageal Reflux is resolved in 72-98% of cases, as well as 74-98% of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. There are several studies that are also showing a significant decrease in several cancers as well. Overall, there is a 30-40% reduction in 10-year mortality.
