Episode Summary

EDIT
Original air date: 5/1/2012 Obesity Under the Knife: As a nation, we’re putting on pounds like never before, and the number of overweight, obese, and morbidly obese Americans is rising rapidly. But being fat goes way beyond extra-large clothing and airline seats that squeeze – it leads to very serious medical issues, from heart disease and diabetes to arthritis. Why are we getting fatter? If losing weight on one’s own isn’t working, should we consider surgery? Care to meet someone who’s had the procedure and is happy to talk about it? Host Monica Sweeney, MD, is joined by three people deeply involved in these questions: Dr. Piotr Gorecki is Director of Bariatric Surgery at New York Methodist Hospital. Susan Meyer is one of his surgical patients. And Juan Batista is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist with Lutheran Medical Center's Surgical Weight Loss Institute.
