BS means Bariatric Surgery, or…?

matei Article by – Matei Dordea


Fortunately the bariatric guys in my hospital are very helpful. They take care of all their complications. It does not matter whether they are on call or not.

We still go in to watch or help.

What is missing from this bariatric good-or-bad discussion is an intellectual/philosophical debate inclusive of the psychological and behavioural aspects of this ‘disease’ (links with other repetitive, obsessive, compulsory behaviours, links to addictive spectrum, etc.).

Unsurprisingly surgeons are the worst kind to engage in this sort of debate. Only mentioning ‘genetics’ and ‘change in food availability’ is a BS copout.
