Abstract

Bariatric surgery in teen-agers is increasing. This surgical option in the severely obese adolescent raises a series of questions on clinical pathway and ethics. It should be realized in highly specialized centers gathering skills in bariatric surgery, pediatric endocrinology and nutrition and psychology. It is a longstanding multifocal and proactive management including the transition to adulthood. Expert centers should be identified.
