Research Into Health Complications & Benefits

Although bariatric weight reduction surgery is designed to benefit the health of morbidly obese patients, it is typically performed under general anesthesia and carries serious perioperative and post-operative health risks. The likelihood and degree of health complications is affected by many factors including: the type of gastric surgery performed (eg. bypass or banding), whether laparoscopy or "open" surgical techniques are used, the skill and experience of the bariatric surgeon, the condition of the patient, and psychosocial factors. Here are some research studies into the impact of obesity surgery on patient health.

Bariatric Surgery

Laparoscopic or open bariatric surgery, such as gastric banding or bypass is not an easy solution to morbid obesity and weight loss. It is a serious surgical procedure, involving health risks. To produce lasting weight loss it requires a long-term patient commitment to eating a healthy diet and following a regular program of physical exercise. Life-long use of nutritional supplements may also be necessary. So, before deciding, discuss your options fully with your doctor. © 2003-2017 Bariatric-Surgery.Info - Terms - Contact - Information - Resources
