Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery
Obesity has become a global epidemic. Everyone knows that morbid obesity can cause worsening of health, as well as the publicly-renowned Three Highs - high blood pressure, high blood lipids and high blood sugar. The common weight loss methods include weight loss drugs and diet controls. However, most people will be fat again or experience poor weight loss effects. And this is the so-called yo-yo effect.
If your weight repeatedly experiences rises and falls, it will not only hurt the effect of weight loss, but also hurt your health. There are various methods for weight loss, but how to treat morbid obesity in an effective and long-lasting way is a serious health issue that needs to be addressed. People suffering morbid obesity may consider surgery as a viable treatment method that can effectively treat the complications caused by obesity, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes.
The Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University established the Bariatric Surgery Department in November of 2011, which has served about 1,500 patients in total. We have a team of professional physicians, case managers and nutritionists who will assist you and support you in your weight loss process.
