This month, Cleveland Clinic researchers published a study that explores the link between bariatric surgery and health. What they found is staggering: patients who have had weight loss surgery have decreased risk of heart attacks and strokes, as well as healthier blood sugar levels!

Dr. Stephen Scott of Bariatric & Metabolic Specialists at HCA Midwest Health at Lee’s Summit Medical Center and Menorah Medical Center, and one of the nation’s leading surgical weight loss physicians, appeared on KCTV 5 to discuss the study’s findings, how qualified patients can benefit from bariatric surgery and the types of weight loss surgery options available.
