Am I Suitable for Obesity Surgery?

Okan University Hospital General Surgery Specialist Asst. Assoc. Dr. Abdulcabbar Kartal explained which patients are suitable for obesity surgery.

“First of all, one must have at least three years of obesity complaints, no chronic alcohol and drug dependence, and within acceptable risk of surgery. A patient who is going to be an obesity surgeon should not have an active psychiatric disorder. Not being age-restricted, surgery can be done more safely between the ages of 20-60. Surgery should be considered as a last resort for weight loss. Obesity surgery should be done in circumstances, when patients can not lose weight despite the absence of hormonal disturbances, cannot be successful at the other treatment methods, or regain weight and health situation begin to deteriorate.”
