Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) describes the procedures involved in combating morbid obesity via alteration of the gastrointestinal tract. It is increasingly used in the cases of patients who have tried other weight loss regimes and have failed to sufficiently reduce their body weight to acceptable levels. Dr. Chang and Dr. Cheregi are at the forefront of leading Advanced Bariatrics as the premier bariatric surgery program in northern Illinois.
Anyone considering weight loss surgery should have a thorough understanding of the potential benefits and risks of the surgical options available. In addition, it is important that patients have a complete understanding of the commitment to the lifestyle changes that will be necessary following surgery. The free informational sessions offered by Advanced Bariatrics are designed to provide detailed information to anyone considering weight loss surgery.
