Weight Loss Surgery Centers
The Weight Loss Surgery Centers industry fared well over the five years to 2018, due to an uptick in total surgeries performed and an overall increase in the number of bariatric surgery centers accredited by the American College of Surgeons. Obesity is one of the biggest public health issues affecting the United States. Bariatric surgery has become less invasive and carries less risk for patients due to product innovations and advancements in laparoscopic surgeries, thereby becoming a more attractive option to treat obesity. Furthermore, according to the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, 50.7% of the population is forecast to be obese by 2030. As a result, demand for industry services is expected to grow alongside an increasingly obese population and efforts to contain rising health costs. .
This industry conducts bariatric surgeries, such as gastric bypass and stomach stapling. Lap band surgery, a method that is growing in popularity, places an inflatable silicone device around the top portion of the stomach via laparoscopy to treat obesity.
