Chirurgia bariatrica

Abstract

Bariatric surgery has become an increasingly popular treatment option for individuals with extreme obesity (defined as a BMI > or = 40 kg/m2) or those with less severe obesity accompanied by significant comorbidities. Sustained postoperative weight loss and improvements in obesity-related health problems make bariatric surgery the most effective treatment for this population.
