Abstract

Bariatric surgery is the only treatment that has been shown to provide sustained weight loss for patients that are morbidly obese. Throughout its relatively short history, bariatric surgery has not yet been widely performed in Korea, and there is still no generally accepted consensus regarding which patients should be indicated for this surgery and what should be evaluated preoperatively. This review suggest several recommended guidelines and the practical applications of those guidelines based on clinical experience.
