Getting the Facts About Bariatric Surgery

If you or someone you know is considering the life-altering decision to undergo weight loss surgery (also referred to as bariatric surgery), it is important to consider all the factors. This will be one of the most important decisions you'll ever make.

Researching Weight Loss Surgery

The first step in weight loss surgery is getting all of the information you need about your surgical options. Ultimately your surgeon and other physicians are your best resource for information about the procedure. The decision to have a surgical weight loss procedure may take several office visits and consultations with more than one doctor. The results of this type of surgery can be drastic, and there are potential risks and complications which should always be discussed with your doctor.

The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) is another excellent resource for weight loss surgery information, and can help you understand the options and get the most out of conversations with your doctor.

The information provided here is not intended as a substitute for the opinion and advice of a qualified physician. Your best source for information is an experienced bariatric surgeon.
