In recent years, morbid obesity has become the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States after smoking, with 400,000 deaths attributable to obesity each year. The term “bariatric surgery” includes a number of procedures designed to help morbidly obese patients lose weight. Bariatric procedures have been recognized as effective tools for morbidly obese patients to lose weight and overcome the diseases often associated with obesity.
Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach. with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).
