Bariatric surgeons specialise in weight loss operations. Several methods are available including a gastric band, the removal of a portion of the stomach and gastric bypass surgery amongst others.
If you are overweight or obese despite trying diet and exercise, then weight loss surgery may be required to improve your health. Weight loss is even more crucial if you have complications of obesity such as diabetes or coronary heart disease.
