Poplawski Bariatric Helps People Change Their Lives

Are you thinking of having Bariatric Surgery? Here are just a few of the benefits of having the surgery.

Cardiovascular Disease

Obesity is associated with an increased risk of hypertension and elevated cholesterol and triglycerides and sedentary lifestyle.  These are all risk factors for the development of early heart disease.  Bariatric surgery is very effective in reducing hypertension and elevated cholesterol and triglycerides.  Because of this, bariatric surgery has been shown to be very effective in reducing the risk of premature death from heart disease.  Just ask your doctor or cardiologist.

This is not just due to weight loss.  It is also the result of significant lifestyle changes that we encourage in our patients.  Normal caloric intake, healthy food choices and regular activity or exercise.


Bariatric surgery, when combined with proper follow up, can reduce hypertension (High Blood Pressure) by between 52 and 92 percent.  It is usually stated that half of the hypertensive patients will be able to come off the medicines.  In my experience the rest of the patient's required less medication to control their hypertension.  This can result in reduced medication costs and reduced side effects of multiple antihypertensive medications.

Life Quality

Bariatric surgery is shown to improve the quality of life in 95 percent of patients. Quality of life means a better life for you.  The goal of bariatric surgery is to help normalize your weight and control those illnesses that are damaging your health and ruining your quality of life.  Talk to patients who have had bariatric surgery and have made the lifestyle changes that were recommended.  They will tell you how their this process has improved their quality of life.

Type II Diabetes

Bariatric surgery is shown to reduce complications and other associated issued with Type II Diabetes in 83 percent of patients who have the surgery.
