Managed Medical Weight Loss Vs Bariatric Surgery

Robert Houtman, one of the founder members of our association (The Obesity Management Association) appeared on SKY NEWS recently, extolling the values of managed medical weight loss against Bariatric surgery, a complex and risky procedure.

Houtman is quoted as saying:

“Obesity is a complex condition and, without accompanying behavioural and emotional support, the weight can pile back on and patients require further treatment. This is draining public funds, which are already reaching breaking point.”
