"One of the biggest medical problems in our society today is overweight and obesity. This disease has enormous health implications. This is precisely why its prevention and treatment is so important. We see patients lose weight and recover quickly after years of health problems through our treatments. It's especially wonderful to see how happy our patients can become from this."
