See Our Weight Loss Doctor in Las Vegas for Surgical Solutions

General surgery is a discipline that requires knowledge of and familiarity with a broad spectrum of diseases that may require surgical treatment. By necessity, the breadth and depth of this knowledge will vary by disease category. In most areas, the surgeon will be expected to be competent in diagnosing and treating the full spectrum of disease. However, there are some types of disease in which comprehensive knowledge and experience are not generally gained in the course of a standard surgical residency. In these areas, the surgeon will be able to recognize and treat a select group of conditions within a disease category.

Other medical conditions often cause obesity. Likewise, obese patients often present with other illness due to the strain excess weight puts on their body. When you are experiencing an illness in conjunction with your obesity, turn to Southern Nevada Bariatrics for medical solutions. Our weight loss doctor in Las Vegas has experienced with a broad range of general surgery procedures used to treat conditions that may be related to obesity.
