Dallas Bariatric Surgeon Offers Multiple Options for Patients Considering Weight Loss Surgery in a Rough Economy
Date:11/7/2009

In the current economic climate, many Americans are monitoring their pocketbooks closely and are only spending money on what that they consider to be absolutely essential. Dallas weight loss surgeon David D. Kim believes that it’s very important for overweight and obese men and women to receive treatment to improve their health, and he is trying to make weight loss surgery affordable to patients in this tough economy by offering reasonable prices and multiple financing options.

Dallas, Texas (Vocus) November 7, 2009 -- For the millions of Americans are overweight or obese, losing weight is often a top priority. However, even though most of these men and women realize how important their health is, they may feel as though they’re not able to afford weight loss surgery in these difficult economic times. Dr. David Kim oversees the Live Life Again Center, a practice offering bariatric surgery in Dallas and the surrounding region. He says the 30% of Americans who qualify for weight loss surgery should know that there is no need to put their health at risk by postponing treatment.

Dr. Kim feels that bariatric surgery has the power to change, and even save, the lives of individuals who are overweight or obese. “Morbid obesity is a disease that affects the entire person- both body and mind. Surgical options…have been proven to help on a permanent, long-term basis in helping them get rid of these medical problems.”

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, obesity causes at least 400,000 excess deaths each year in the United States. Dr. Kim says obesity can affect individuals of all ages and have harmful consequences. “Studies have conclusively proven that younger patients with obesity will shorten their lifespan by as much as 20 years.”

In order to help ensure that overweight and obese patients receive the treatment that they need to enjoy healthier, longer lives, Dr. Kim is offering affordable pricing and several financing options for all of the treatments at his Dallas weight loss surgery practice.

At the Life Again Center for Bariatric Surgery, Dr. Kim offers laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery, laparoscopic gastric sleeve reduction, and the LAP-BAND® in Dallas. In addition to providing patients with several treatment options, Dr. Kim offers access to a variety of financing plans to help make paying for treatment convenient and affordable.

In some cases, insurance companies will help pay for weight loss surgery procedures. Dr. Kim and his staff are familiar with all of the medical requirements and work to ensure that patients receive as much financial assistance from their insurance companies as possible.

Patients at the Life Again Center for Bariatric Surgery receive comprehensive care before, during, and after their weight loss procedures. Dr. Kim’s staff is fully trained to provide patients with the help they need to overcome their weight struggles and to live without the burdens and risks caused by obesity. By offering an extensive weight loss surgery program, including counseling, support groups, and lifetime follow-up care, Dr. Kim says he hopes to help patients fight morbid obesity and start living healthier lifestyles with slimmer physiques. And, even in tough financial times, he believes the Live Life Again Center can assist patients in bringing the cost of surgery into their budget.
