Abstract

Managing obesity is challenging and new treatment involves multimodal chronic care tailored to each patient. Dietary and lifestyle management underpin all treatment options, and pharmacotherapy has an adjuvant role in aiding appetite suppression. In morbidly obese people and obese people with comorbidities, durable weight loss can be safely achieved with bariatric surgery, of which there are several surgical options with current data favouring sleeve gastrectomy.
