‘A New Life’: Study Shows Long-Term Health Outcomes for Bariatric Surgery in Teens

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that three years after undergoing bariatric surgery, adolescents experienced major improvements in their weight, metabolic health, and quality of life. It is the largest and longest study of teen obesity weight-loss surgery.

Dr. Thomas Inge, lead author of the study and surgical director of the Surgical Weight Loss Program for Teens, said seeing diabetes and other obesity-related health problems resolved was remarkable and gratifying.
