Roller Weight Loss & Advanced Surgery in Fort Smith

If you’re struggling with excess weight and haven’t been successful in losing it with diet and exercise, bariatric surgery may be appropriate. Generally, these surgeries are indicated for those who have a BMI from 35 to 40 or higher. The diseases associated with this condition include type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, liver disease, or kidney disease. The surgery not only allows you to lose a large amount of weight, but to also enjoy improved overall health. The right surgery for you will reflect your specific condition.
