Medical Weight Loss &

Bariatric Surgery

In their clinical practice guidelines for the perioperative nutritional, metabolic, and nonsurgical support of the bariatric surgery patient, The Obesity Society (TOS), the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) acknowledge that bariatric surgery remains a safe and effective intervention for select patients with obesity; however, they also stress that a team approach to perioperative care is mandatory with special attention to nutritional and metabolic issues.
