Physicians, nurses, therapists and staff work together to Weight-loss

Physicians, nurses, therapists and staff work together to Weight-loss from surgery decreases risk for cardiovascular disease in women

A recent study conducted by scientists from Tufts University, University of California-Davis and the Oregon Health and Sciences Center found that bariatric surgical procedures for morbidly obese women can not only provide significant weight loss, but may also improve the cholesterol profiles of those same women a year out from surgery resulting in a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease.

While bariatric surgery has been shown to improve a patient’s heart rate and decreased blood pressure and insulin rate, this is the first time researchers have searched for key cholesterol markers to measure decreased risk of cardiovascular disease in this female patient population.

This research has yet to be carried out in men who have undergone bariatric surgery, but studies are continuing to prove the effectiveness and overall improved health of these surgical methods for the morbidly obese person.
