What is metabolic and bariatric surgery?
Metabolic and bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a group of procedures for the digestive system. They modify the stomach or intestines to treat chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure. Most metabolic and bariatric procedures are minimally invasive and have low complication rates. By making a patient’s stomach smaller or bypassing a portion of their intestines, the procedures help decrease hunger and increase fullness. They are effective and long-lasting treatment options for patients with severe obesity and related conditions.
