One in four Americans is considered to be obese with a body max index (BMI) over 30. Out of these, hundreds of thousands are considered to be severely or more commonly described as "morbidly" obese with a BMI calculation over 35. It has been coined "morbid" obesity due to the life threatening health conditions that are found to accompany obesity at that level.
For the morbidly obese patient, traditional diet and/or exercise programs may only have limited success. Exercise can be difficult because of hindered mobility or pain and many actually end up gaining weight because of the "falling off the wagon" effect of failed diets.
