Weight Loss Surgery Before Pregnancy Lowers Risk for Gestational Diabetes

Adult Obesity Treated Using New FDA-approved Device
03/19/2015 - VBLOC vagal blocking therapy delivered via the Maestro System (EnteroMedics Inc., Minneapolis, MN) is now approved to treat adults with obesity. Learn about the device, how it works, side effects, and study results.
Bariatric Surgery
Many people with obesity can’t simply lose weight with healthy eating and physical activity, despite how hard they may try. Bariatric (obesity) surgery is performed to treat people who have morbid obesity.
