For millions of people around the world, obesity is a debilitating problem that affects nearly every aspect of a person’s life. More than just a health issue, severe weight gain can cause barriers and obstacles that lead to additional psychological, social and emotional disabilities. This creates difficult hurdles that stand in the way of people’s lives and prevent them from enjoying life to the fullest. Those who face these issues cannot help but feel a complete sense of helplessness, especially after trying various diets unsuccessfully.
“It’s not uncommon for individuals with obesity to move from one diet to another, only to see their weight yo-yo back and forth and increase even higher,” says Dr. Ariel Ortiz, the director of Obesity Control Center and Board Certified medical surgeon. “Our center is a state-of-the-art facility that provides safe, effective weight loss solutions to those who feel they have no other options. We specialize in all the leading gastric procedures, and we are recognized for offering the highest levels of patient care and safety in the field.”
