Bariatric surgery also known as weight loss surgery includes various procedures performed on people who are having extra fat. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch

  • Sources: Bariatric Surgery: A Summary of the Literature, 1990 to 2001 <br />
  • The operation produced significant and durable weight loss with an average maximum weight loss of 70% of excess weight at about 2 years after surgery. At 5 years the loss was 58%, 10 years it was 55% and after 14 years it was 49%. <br /> More striking is the control of diabetes. Pre-op 27% had NIDDM and 27% had impaired glucose tolerance. Within 10 days of surgery most patients had no further evidence of diabetes. Long term 91% were restored to euglycemic. <br /> Pre-op 58% had hypertension. Post-op this was reduced to 14%. Additionally these patients noted marked improvement in cardiorespiratory function, arthritis problems and improvement in fertility. <br />
