In the United States, we have an obesity rate of about 30% and that translates to about 20 million Americans who would potentially qualify to have weight loss surgery. Unfortunately, we only perform about 350,000 operations a year in this country, which means that there is a huge population of patients out there that could benefit from weight loss surgery and aren’t taking advantage of it.
