New York Bariatric Group Helps Patients Change Their Lives with Safe & Successful Bariatric Surgery

New Hyde Park, NY – Many obese adults struggle with the decision of whether or not to choose bariatric surgery as a solution to their weight and health problems. That’s why the New York Bariatric Group educates their prospective patients that choosing bariatric surgery is actually an extremely intelligent decision, and one which takes strength and character to make.

Nikki Massie, author of the Bariatric Foodie, raises an extremely important issue when she discusses how obesity is portrayed as a character defect, rather than a disease. In this light, choosing bariatric surgery is a sign that a person is too weak to succeed on their own, and that it’s a shameful or inappropriate decision.

This, of course, could not be farther from the truth. With the help of one of today’s leading types of bariatric surgery, patients can experience wonderful results which not only help them to lose excess weight and feel better about themselves, but actually change, improve and extend their lives.

The appropriate questions to ask one’s self are actually “Do I need surgery to help with my heart disease?” or “Do I need the surgery to beat this cancer?” Taken a step further, “Will bariatric surgery save my life?” or “Will I live to see my children grow up if I choose bariatric surgery?”

Choosing to undergo weight loss surgery is not a sign of inadequacy. It’s a decision to take real action to live a healthier and longer life. It’s the decision to utilize a proven, effective and safe tool to help accomplish an important goal.

At New York Bariatric Group, patients receive the assistance of highly experienced and skilled surgeons, who utilize the latest and most advanced technology and procedures. NYBG also offers patients a comprehensive support program which helps individuals make the transition smoothly and successfully, including mentorships, support groups, nutritional and lifestyle education, and more.
