We believe that patient education plays an important role in the success of our weight loss surgery procedures. We offer educational seminars to help patients understand the surgical procedures and the risks and benefits of each. It is no wonder why so many patients trust in Dr. Barnes for their weight loss needs.
Morbid obesity has become an epidemic problem. The condition is characterized by having a BMI of 35 or higher or being at least 80 pounds overweight. Morbid obesity can lead to many other health conditions that can affect one’s quality of life, such as sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and more. Approximately 60 million American adults are considered morbidly obese. Morbid obesity can be treated through weight loss surgery performed by an experienced surgeon, Dr. Gregory Barnes, at our Dallas / Fort Worth-area practice.
