Adolescent obesity is on the rise in the United States. Obesity-related diseases due to this epidemic include hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, sleep apnea, insulin resistance, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and type 2 diabetes, and are likely to continue into adulthood if left untreated. Bariatric surgeons are challenged with identifying appropriate adolescent candidates for surgery, as well as recognizing which procedure may be most beneficial. This abstract will review the experience of two patients, each undergoing two different procedures for bariatric surgery, and highlight key decision making points for surgeons selecting surgeries for adolescents
