Abstract

Obesity has become an increasingly serious problem in pediatric and adolescent populations in the United States. Although bariatric surgery has been offered to morbidly obese adolescents for the past several decades, it remains controversial. However, the benefits of weight loss surgery in this population have been realized, particularly its long-term physical and emotional effects on adolescents. This article reviews the demographics and health implications of adolescent obesity, describes the most common adolescent bariatric surgical procedures and their outcomes, discusses the ethical issues involved in elective surgery in this population, and outlines the key components of an adolescent bariatric surgical program.
