Abstract

Bariatric surgical procedures were designed and developed to induce weight loss and hence improve or eliminate obesity related co-morbidities. The field of bariatric surgery has grown appreciably over the last decade with a rapid rise in the utilization of bariatric surgery worldwide, partly fueled by the introduction of minimally invasive surgery techniques and partly by the growing epidemic of obesity. This chapter reviews the most common bariatric operations performed with emphasis on technique, short and long-term outcomes.
