Obesity, which affects more than one third of the U.S. adult population, increases the risk of diseases and serious health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. When it comes to weight management, people need a treatment plan that fits their individual needs and health situation — what works for some, may not work for others.

In this interactive discussion, Mercy Health bariatric surgeon Yasir Khan, DO will review the latest research on obesity and discuss the surgical and nonsurgical options for weight loss.
