About Obesity Surgery Devices Market

Obesity is a chronic metabolic and genetic disease involving accumulation of excessive or abnormal fat in the body. Obesity surgeries decrease the size of the stomach, in order to limit the amount of food it can hold. This limits the quantity of food patients can ingest, leading to drastic weight loss. It has a beneficial effect on many medical conditions such as acid reflux, low back pain, diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension, acid reflux, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and urinary stress incontinence. Increasing prevalence of obesity among children and adults is posing a threat in both developed and developing nations. Obesity has a major impact on population longevity and health-related expenses. Obesity surgeries result in 40% to 80% loss of excess weight after two to three years, depending on the obesity surgery procedure.
