Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity.

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.
