Many people struggle with obesity. Excess body fat can lead to a number of health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, back pain, chronic acid reflux, cancer and many other conditions. If any of these are an issue for you, there's help available at Black Hills Surgical Hospital.
