C-Arms: Essential for Bariatric Surgery Centers

Tags: C-Arms

What Does The AMA’s Decision To Declare Obesity A Disease Mean For Your Practice?

In July, after a year of study, the AMA declared obesity to be a disease. This decision impacts two groups: the approximately 90 million Americans who meet the diagnostic parameters for obesity and the health care providers who serve them.

According to Forbes, the motivation for declaring obesity a disease was to shift societal attention and funds toward the treatment of obesity and conditions complicated by obesity. As practice managers, we can expect to see a significant increase in the number of patients seeking treatment for obesity, including bariatric surgery.

C-Arms for Bariatric Surgery Centers

Per the Mayo Clinic, the four most common types of bariatric surgery are the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, the Very Long Limb Gastric Bypass, the Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch and the Sleeve Gastroectomy. The C-Arm is the diagnostic imaging equipment tool of choice physicians use to facilitate these procedures.
