Course Overview

Bariatric surgery, also commonly known as weight-loss surgery, is currently the most effective treatment available for combating obesity and offers a long-term solution for individuals suffering with obesity. In addition to resulting in significant weight loss, bariatric surgery positively impacts more than 40 weight-related medical conditions and decreases a person’s risk of premature death. The most frequently performed bariatric procedures in America are gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy, with laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding falling out of favor in recent years. In 2015, 196,000 bariatric surgery procedures were performed. Learn if patients qualify for bariatric surgery, the ramifications of each type of surgery, and the nutritional management pre-op and post-op. Bariatric surgery isn’t a cure for obesity, but rather a treatment tool. Long-term success requires lifelong commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
