Dr. Richardson discusses the bariatric surgery, also known as surgical weight loss procedures. The latest advancements in bariatric surgery are done laparoscopically meaning the surgery is less invasive for the patient. This can lead to a faster recovery time and less complications. Good candidates have to follow very stringent guidelines and most importantly be ready to make a significant lifestyle change with the goal of loosing weight.
