Hey there. Just google bariatric surgery and see what happens. Basically bariatric surgery IS weighloss surgery, but is more specific to Gastic Bypass Surgery.

Bariatric surgery is not specifically gastric bypass or lap banding - a bariatric surgeon is a doctor who does surgery to treat obesity - can involve a whole range of different procedures.
