Many people try to lose weight with diets, exercise, and pills, and for various reasons, can’t. It is a frustrating cycle for morbidly obese people who want so much to shed off the immense physical and emotional burden they carry each and every day, but are not able to because exercise and eating habits seem difficult, if not impossible, to change. In addition to the burden of weight, the morbidly obese often suffer from chronic pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, making life a struggle every day.
However, there is hope for the morbidly obese who have had difficulty losing weight through traditional diet and exercise. Dra. Ana Santos Quiñones of the Institute for Advanced Surgery and Obesity Control has committed her life’s work to helping morbidly obese patients achieve safe and effective weight loss. She does this by using her talent and experience to perform bariatric surgery. Through the surgical procedures she offers at the institute, she seeks to improve the quality of life for the morbidly obese and to help control – and hopefully eliminate – the many health problems that plague them.
Though life immediately following the surgery will not be easy, it will be rewarding and you will begin to notice a significant improvement.
