Obesity is responsible for multiple chronic medical conditions. Treatment of obesity is never easy and successful treatment more often than not requires a multidisciplinary approach. Bariatric surgery has an ever increasing significant role in the management of obesity. In this video, Mr Axisa discusses the role of Bariatric surgery in the management of obesity.
