Association Between Bariatric Surgery and Long-term Survival

A recent study completed in December 2014 by the Veterans Affairs office shows further evidence that obese patients that have bariatric surgery live longer than those who do not.

The abstract (available here) states:

"Among obese patients receiving care in the VA health system, those who underwent bariatric surgery compared with matched control patients who did not have surgery had lower all-cause mortality at 5 years and up to 10 years following the procedure. These results provide further evidence for the beneficial relationship between surgery and survival that has been demonstrated in younger, predominantly female populations."
