Obesity is a worldwide epidemic that shortens human life with its comorbid diseases. According to the latest data of the Turkish Ministry of Health, one out of every 3 people is obese in our country. Doctors are among those who have struggled with obesity throughout their lives. Probably none of our colleagues would want to struggle with the problems caused by excess weight while curing the diseases. The most effective treatment of obesity is achieved by applying surgical methods.
