What is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery is the collective term for surgical procedures that help you lose weight. The surgeries are done in one of several ways, including (but not limited to) reducing the size of the stomach (as with gastric banding), removing a portion of the stomach (as with gastric sleeve surgery) or bypassing most of the stomach and rerouting the small intestine (as in gastric bypass surgery).
