Doctors suggest weight loss surgery or bariatric surgery, when it becomes impossible to lose weight.
A study has released some of the benefits of weight loss surgery.
Generally weight loss surgery is carried before the hip or knee replacement surgery as it beneficial.
It has also found that weight loss surgery reduces the risk of asthma flare-up.
Patients who needed knee or hip surgery were enrolled in the experiment.
They were divided into two groups, one group had patients who have undergone weight loss surgery before the knee or hip surgery and the other group is the one who didn’t had weight loss surgery before the hip or knee replacement surgery.
It was found that the people who had weight loss surgery not only recovered early but asthma flare-up were also reduced.
The study is led by Dr. Emily Dodwell from Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York.
Dodwell said 50 percent of hip or knee replacement surgery is performed in obese patients.
