Under Construction: Materials are being added to each of the toolkit sections, please continue to check back in to find new resources.
These materials are presented by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, primarily the Integrated Health Section of the Society, regarding the surgical treatment for obesity or metabolic disease. The documents presented are based on current clinical experience and medical evidence available at this time. The materials are not definitive, and are not the recommendations of the Society. The documents and their contents are not intended as, and cannot not be construed as, stating or establishing a local, regional, or national standard of care.
This section is intended to be a “starter package” for hospitals who do not currently have a bariatric program and need to know what information they should begin to gather for a feasibility study.
