What is Metabolic Surgery?

Metabolic surgery refers to a group of procedures that involve either reduction or bypassing sections of the stomach and small intestine, and are commonly used as a treatment for obesity. Metabolic surgery has been shown to dramatically improve glycemic control, leading to complete remission from Type 2 Diabetes in the majority of patients, depending on the procedure, as well as lead to reduction of excess weight, depending on the procedure itself.
