Why Can't I Lose Weight?
More than 35 percent of adults in the United States are considered obese, meaning they are more than 35 pounds over their ideal body weight or have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 39.9.
Approximately 12 million people in the United States are considered morbidly obese, meaning they are more than 100 pounds over their ideal body weight or have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40.
Although diet and exercise are appropriate means of weight control for those who are mildly to moderately overweight (BMI: 25 to 30), these methods are generally ineffective for the morbidly obese.
Morbid obesity is associated with many medical, physical, social, emotional and even economic disabilities. Together our physicians and medical professionals work to improve the overall quality of life for morbidly obese patients and their families.
Weight Loss Surgery
At Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, our weight loss surgery program is more than a surgical procedure or a meal replacement program. Our program is comprehensive, treating each patient as an individual. Our strength is our dedicated staff — from the assistant who checks you in, to our surgeon who has performed more than 2,300 weight loss surgeries in the past decade.
