History and Progress of Bariatric Surgery in Malaysia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Bariatric surgery has become a popular treatment modality for obesity in Malaysia. However, the absence of a standardized national registry has led to paucity of information pertaining to quantity and quality of bariatric surgery in Malaysia. In the absence of a national registry, a nationwide survey was conducted with the aim of establishing a fair estimate of case volume based on type of procedure and to identify the total number of surgeons performing those procedures at their respective centers from 1st January 2010 to 31st December 2016. For this purpose, a questionnaire was designed and distributed to bariatric surgeons throughout Malaysia. The data along with a brief narrative of the history and progress of bariatric surgery in Malaysia is presented in this report.
