Abstract

Bariatric surgery is the most effective weight loss strategy available to treat the emerging pandemic of morbid obesity. Though considered safe in the hands of an experienced surgeon, these procedures are not without potential complications. It is imperative that surgeons are aware of common complications that might present in the early postoperative period and treat those adequately to prevent adverse outcomes. Preventive strategies, initiated in the preoperative and intraoperative periods, along with prompt diagnosis and treatment of postoperative complications are instrumental in reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with these procedures.
