Risks & Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery

Dr. Jorge Rabaza

Although there are many benefits to be gained when performing weight loss surgery, Dr. Jorge Rabaza, Chief of Surgery with South Miami Hospital, also says the procedure can have some risks, such as infection, bleeding, leak, and pulmonary embolism.

He also explains when a patient has been obese for 30 or 40 years, he also has an excessive skin of the lower abdomen and it would require another surgical procedure.

Besides the physical and health benefits, this surgery also has a mental benefit, doctor Rabaza affirms.
