Bone and Joint Pain/ Arthritis
How is it affected by bariatric surgery?
The less weight is placed on joints, the less strain is placed on these joints. Weight loss surgery can reduce much of this weight over a long period of time and can be very effective in reversing or preventing osteoarthritis.
What success have patients found through bariatric surgery?
A recent study of 500 patients showed a 90% resolution of arthritis among surgical patients.
