ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the Bariatric Surgery as one of the most effective treatments of obesity. In the U.S., an estimate of 220,000 procedures of the said surgery were performed in 2008. It has been proven through clinical tests that body weight loss has dramatically decreased that ranged from 15 percent to 30 percent. Moreover, surveys indicate that only 1.9 percent mortality rate is tallied concerning those patients who have undergone such clinical surgery.
