As you know, surgery is no laughing matter. While technology has changed and surgery is generally incredibly safe, you can do your part to minimize risks by optimizing your health. That includes getting your weight as close as possible to ideal (BMI 20-24) and improving your respiratory system. We can help.
Being overweight guarantees some level of pulmonary disease or dysfunction. Therefore, treating just the weight is only half the battle. By combining the tools of ProportionFit and The Breather, the Battle Ready Health Kit will help optimize your health for surgery. And we know that health optimization minimizes (but does not eliminate) risks related to surgery. You want your surgery done once and done right, but you also need to do your part. This is it.

"Even though obese surgical patients can have good results from orthopedic surgery, they have a much higher risk of complications in the operating room and after surgery..."
"Obesity has significant effects on respiratory function, which contribute significantly to the burden of respiratory disease."
"Patients who are super obese [BMI>50] are at increased risk for serious complications compared with patients with morbid obesity [BMI>40], whose risks are elevated relative to patients whose BMI is less than 40..." In other words: The greater the weight, the greater the risk.
"...obesity had about twofold increased risk of surgical site infections risk in orthopedics."
"Excess weight can put you at risk for certain side effects and complications of surgery."
