Weight loss surgery
Weight loss surgery has been around since the 1950s when the first intestinal gastric bypass operations were performed. Since then, there have been many refinements in surgical procedures for obesity and much has been learned. Historically, the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass was the standard weight loss operation performed by most bariatric surgeons in the United States. In recent years, the sleeve gastrectomy has become increasingly prevalent. The duodenal switch has been demonstrated to be the most potent weight loss procedure.
The safety and efficacy of these weight loss procedures have been proven repeatedly in numerous scientific studies performed in the United States and abroad. Safety is greatly increased when the procedures are performed by qualified surgeons dedicated to the treatment of obesity.
