Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a transformative treatment option for individuals struggling with morbid obesity. It stands out as one of the most effective methods for achieving substantial weight loss and maintaining it in the long run. Beyond weight reduction, bariatric surgery brings about significant improvements in obesity-related comorbid conditions, including Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, joint pain, sleep disorders like sleep apnoea, heart diseases, infertility, and more.
