Treatments for Obesity: Medications and Bariatric Surgical Procedures - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Treatments for obesity. Medications and bariatric surgical procedures. You may be put on weight loss medication for obesity if your BMI is 30 or more, or if your BMI is 27 or more and you also have an obesity-related health problem such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Some weight loss medications prevent your body from taking in fat from the food you eat. Other weight loss medications work by making you feel less hungry. Your health care provider may advise a bariatric surgical procedure if your BMI is 40 or more or if your BMI is 35 or more and you also have obesity-related health problems. During a sleeve gastrectomy procedure, your surgeon will remove most of your stomach. This leaves a smaller sleeve-like tube, about the size of a banana, called a gastric sleeve. The smaller gastric sleeve holds less food and makes you feel full more quickly. During an adjustable gastric band procedure, your surgeon will place a band around the top of your stomach. This makes a smaller pouch to hold food. As a result, you will feel full when eating smaller portions of food. In another surgical procedure called a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, your surgeon will close off the top of your stomach with staples. This will create a small pouch. Then a section of your small intestine will be attached to the small stomach pouch. This new connection bypasses most of your stomach, as well as the part of your small intestine where most of the nutrients from the food you eat are absorbed. As a result, you will eat less food and your body won't absorb as much of it. After a bariatric procedure, it's important to follow the dietary guidelines from your health care provider and to stay physically active. If you have any questions about medications or surgical procedures for obesity, talk to your health care provider.

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."
