Bariatric Surgery is a type of weight-loss surgery which is performed on the stomach or intestine to reduce the intake of food by the patient.

Bariatric surgery can adopt an open approach or can be done through laparoscopy. In an open approach the patient’s stomach will be cut open in the traditional way using standard methods while laparoscopy involves the insertion of complex instruments via half-inch cuts that will send images to a monitor using a small camera. In fact, a number of bariatric surgeries are done using the laparoscopic methods today as there are lesser complications involved.
