Why travel to South Korea for Obesity Surgery?

Morbid obesity is now considered a chronic condition. Its damage is manifested through ongoing metabolic destruction and chronic inflammation to various organ systems inside the body. The systemic damage eventually leads to the development of obesity-related conditions such as hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, glucose intolerance/insulin resistance, atherosclerosis, dyslipidaemia, and endocrine dysfunction among others.

Established by organizations such as the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, bariatric or obesity surgery is the only proven effective therapeutic/surgical measure for those with morbid obesity (BMI>40) or severe obesity (BMI>35) with associated medical conditions for Caucasians. Further, a study conducted by Song HJ and associates evaluated the cost-effectiveness of bariatric surgery compared to nonsurgical interventions to treat obesity. The study revealed that bariatric surgery was a cost-effective alternative to nonsurgical interventions over a lifetime, because it also provided considerable advantages for severely obese individuals such as the Korean people.
