Gastric Banding: CMC/DHK's latest weapon for fighting obesity
Obesity is an extremely complex problem and a major health challenge across our country. In the last 20 years, the percentage of obese Americans has doubled, making about 3/5 of our population overweight; here in New Hampshire, obesity affects about 20 percent. Millions of overweight Americans are at risk for serious health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, infertility, incontinence, sleep apnea, joint problems, respiratory problems, and more.
Obesity has a ripple effect that can impact every part of one’s life – physical, emotional, psychological, financial, and social.
