Metabolic and bariatric surgery includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach through removal of a portion of the stomach known as sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch, known as gastric bypass surgery. Long-term studies show the procedures cause significant long-term loss of weight, recovery from diabetes, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, and a mortality reduction from 40% to 23%.
