Bariatric (or weight loss) surgery has been proven to be the best solution for morbidly obese patients aiming for sustained weight loss. This type of surgery modifies the stomach or intestines to restrict the amount of food one eats or the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs. In addition to significant weight loss, type 2 diabetes often goes into remission, helping patients to get off medications and improve their health.
