Each patient needs to be evaluated separately before surgery. A careful multidisciplinary evaluation, detailed examinations and tests should be carried out. The decision of bariatric and metabolic surgery is based on international guidelines and ethical principles. A council composed of all departments participated in the treatment of the patient meets before the operation and gives the final decision on approval of the surgery.
