Bariatric surgeon is a doctor specialised in performing weight-loss surgeries in the stomach or intestine. Surgeries performed by a bariatric surgeon helps a person with extreme obesity or overweight lose weight. They do so by performing condition-specific surgeries on the stomach and/or intestine. These types of surgeries are usually an option for people with a body mass index (BMI) over 40 who have associated health issues like type 2 diabetes or heart disease.
Bariatric surgeons usually perform two basic types of surgeries namely- restrictive surgeries and malabsorptive surgeries. While restrictive surgeries involve restricting the size of the stomach and slowing down digestion, malabsorptive surgeries are more invasive in nature and are performed by removing parts of the digestive tracts that lead to interfering with the absorption of the calories.
