What is Bariatric Surgery?
Maybe you’ve heard the term “bariatric surgery” but that’s about the extent of your knowledge, unless you or someone you know has undergone such a procedure.
First, we’ll go straight to the source of the word. Baros means “weight” in Greek. Just like a barometer measures air pressure or weight, “bariatric” describes the medical treatment for those who are severely overweight (in short, those who suffer from obesity).
Bariatric surgery is generally only used as a last measure, employed when alternative methods of weight loss prove ineffective.
