Surgery beneficial for severely obese Severely obese people benefit from weight-loss surgery, the American Heart Association said after U.S. and Canadian researchers assessed heart risks from bariatric surgery. Operations such as gastric bypass and gastric banding may lead to weight loss and improved diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure. The benefits may outweigh the hazards, the heart group said Tuesday in the journal Circulation. Almost 34 percent of Americans are obese, and more than 5 percent are extremely obese. Those people have a greater risk of diabetes, heart attack and stroke. Efforts with diet, exercise and drugs have been "disappointing," so doctors must look at surgical options, said lead author Paul Poirier of Laval University Hospital in Quebec City, Canada. But more study is needed on the weight-loss procedures, he said.
