Rate

No votes yet
  • Historically, family based non-surgical treatment has been the gold standard for youth needing weight management programming. 

  • Given the continued rates of obesity, its extensive comorbid conditions and failures in non-surgical interventions, surgical procedures have become increasingly used in adolescents. 

  • However, few studies have compared outcomes between surgical and non-surgical interventions for adolescents.  

  • This abstract will review preliminary data from a children’s hospital’s surgical and non-surgical program.
