Skinny the Wrong Way: Orthopaedic Issues and Bariatric Surgery (MBS)
This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Meet ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements for Bariatric. Learn more about ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements.
Obesity is a causative co-factor and surgical risk escalator for hip and knee osteoarthritis, as well as multiple other conditions. Body mass index (BMI) parameters are increasingly being used as qualifiers for elective surgery such as hip and knee replacements, as markedly elevated BMI levels are associated with unacceptable rates of surgical complications. Bariatric intervention, with physiologically appropriate weight reduction, is increasingly sought to help patients qualify for and ready themselves for these major surgical procedures. This session will review data on adverse health effects of obesity, surgical risks associated with operating on the obese, and the growing role of collaborative programs between surgical specialists such as orthopaedic surgeons and their bariatric surgeon colleagues. The insurance industry also is directing punitive measures toward providers and health systems that refuse to adopt these new patient care standards.
