Bariatric surgery is the name given to all surgical interventions performed to eliminate morbid obesity. However, it should not be the first choice for every patient in the treatment process. First of all, patients should be provided with weight control with diet and exercise.
However, in overweight patients with a very high body mass index, this method may not provide long-term sustainable weight loss. For this reason, bariatric surgery is a treatment method that is increasing day by day in order to provide permanent weight control for some patient groups.Patients diagnosed with obesity should also be evaluated by an endocrinologist, dietitian and, if necessary, a psychologist.
Therefore, centers that work with a multidisciplinary weight management approach for their surgical intervention are important. It is also important that these centers are equipped to meet the care needs of individuals with obesity.
