Surgical Weight Loss
About 12 million people in the United States are considered morbidly obese, meaning that they are more than 100 pounds over their ideal body weight or have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 40 (greater than or equal to 35 if you have diabetes, high blood pressure or sleep apnea).
