Childhood obesity is a complex problem that increases the chances of children becoming overweight or obese as adults. It is a serious illness with serious side effects on physical, psychological and behavioral health including chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, liver disease, heart disease and depression.
The Children’s Health Bariatric Surgical Center works with adolescents and their families to address the problem of obesity. We identify candidates for weight loss surgery and provide the surgical, medical, nutritional, emotional and social support necessary for adolescents.
