Long-Term Outcomes after Adolescent Bariatric Surgery

In this episode of The Operative Word from JACS, host Jaime Coleman, MD, FACS, is joined by Nestor F. De la Cruz-Muñoz Jr., MD, professor of surgery and section chief of bariatric surgery at the University of Miami, FL. They discuss his recent study, which demonstrated the lasting, positive impact of bariatric surgery even decades later, and confirms that bariatric surgery should not be denied to adolescents struggling with morbid obesity.
