Laparoscopic Bypass Surgery Risks Dallas Ft Worth Texas
DR. DAVID KIM: Patients often present with concerns of major tragedies that have occurred after bariatric surgery. Many times these stories have been spurred on by the lay press. Please take heart in knowing that there are different risks involved with all the different procedures. As well, we have been nationally recognized as having some of the lowest complication rates in the country as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. And finally understand that the risks of living with this disease of morbid obesity is far greater than the risks of surgery alone.
Some of the more common risks are blood clots and bleeding. Please understand that there are different risks with each operation, so I think it’s important that you take the time to learn about these operations. Also take note that as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence we have been nationally recognized to have some of the lowest complication rates in the country.
Lastly I believe living with this disease of morbid obesity is a far greater risk than the surgery itself.
