Bariatric/metabolic surgery is the most effective method to treat morbid obesity and its complications. Tracing its origin back to jejunoileal bypass in 1950s, bariatric/metabolic surgery has been continuously improved after more than 60 years of development. At present, the mainstream surgical procedures include sleeve gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, biliopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch, and mini gastric bypass. In addition, new procedures such as single-anastomosis duodenal switch, duodenal-jejunal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic greater curvature plication and endoscopic surgeries have been developed. This article reviews the history, status quo, and prospects of bariatric/metabolic surgery.
