Abstract

Morbid obesity remains a population health crisis in the United States and in countries around the world. Options for treatment include lifestyle modification with dietary counseling and physical activity, endoscopic therapies, and bariatric/metabolic surgery. Bariatric surgery is well established as the most durable and effective treatment for the chronic disease that is obesity. Surgical options include Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG), among other less commonly performed procedures such as adjustable gastric banding or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is currently the most commonly performed bariatric procedure in the United States, while the number of gastric bypasses has decreased substantially.
