Bariatric Surgery

Overview

Bariatric surgery is a procedure performed on the stomach or intestines to induce weight loss. This surgery may be an option for people who are obese or have not been able to lose weight using other methods.  There are several types of bariatric surgery.

After surgery, there are things to consider to ensure successful recovery and weight loss. With a smaller intake of food, and increased difficulty absorbing fats, it’s important to eat nutritiously to avoid iron deficiency or vitamin deficiency.
