Bariatric Procedures

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. Exercise and diet alone sometimes fail to effectively treat people with extreme and excessive obesity. Bariatric surgery is an operation that is performed in order to help lose weight. Evidence suggests that bariatric surgery may lower death rates for patients with severe obesity, especially when coupled with healthy eating and lifestyle changes after surgery.
