Why the NHS should do more bariatric surgery; how much should we do?

Abstract:
As the epidemic of severe and complex obesity worsens, availability of the most successful treatment, bariatric surgery, is limited. Less than 1% of those who could benefit get treatment. By contrast, people with other lifestyle health problems such as alcohol related liver disease are treated. We explore the clinical and cost effectiveness of bariatric surgery and examine the barriers to access.
