This bucket contains what healthcare staff involved in the care of the adolescent bariatric surgery patient should know regarding the additional considerations in caring for adolescents undergoing bariatric surgery.  Guidelines from several pediatric organizations are provided. These guidelines will set the foundation for adolescent program practice. Please also refer to the MBSAQIP guidelines (located in this toolkit) for their specific guidelines for programs that include adolescent bariatric surgery as well as the sensitivity folder. The needs of each clinic will be different, and these resources are provided as a guide only.
