Obesity or Bariatric Surgery

Obesity has become a global health problem that contributes to numerous life-threatening and disabling diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease.

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. This is done by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch. The U.S. National Institutes of Health prescribes bariatric surgery for corpulent individuals with a body mass record (BMI) of no less than 40, and for individuals with BMI of no less than 35 and genuine coinciding therapeutic conditions.
