When To Call Your Surgeon After Bariatric Surgery

Fortunately, improvements in technique and technology have made significant complications of bariatric surgery exceedingly rare. In fact, today, the risk of death due to bariatric surgery is about the same as a simple gallbladder removal or cholecystectomy. In other words, bariatric surgery today is more effective and safer than during any time in its history. That is not to say, however, that it is not without risk; and this risk is highest in the few weeks after the surgical procedure.
