ABSTRACT
The article presents International Pharmaco-EEG Group (IPEG) guidelines for surgical treatment of extremely obese adolescents. These guidelines aim to direct surgeons who are thinking of using bariatric surgery for adolescents. The decision for conducting bariatric surgery must be based on a patient's obesity-related comorbid conditions, physiologic and psychological maturation and family support structures.
