Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) -- Gastric sleeve and other weight-loss surgeries make changes to your digestive system to help you lose weight by limiting how much you can eat or by reducing the absorption of nutrients, or both. Gastric sleeve and other weight-loss surgeries are done when diet and exercise haven't worked or when you have serious health problems because of your weight.
