Recent clinical practice guidelines state that weight-loss leads to functional improvement in joint pain. It can then be expected that bariatric surgery, the only proven long-term weight-loss modality in the morbidly obese, should have a similar effect. Body Mass Index (BMI) measurements are used to categorize patients into different severities of obesity. A BMI of less than 25 kg/m2 is considered normal. Patients are classified as overweight with a BMI between 25 and 30 kg/m2, obese with a BMI that is over 30 kg/m2, and morbidly obese with a BMI that is over 40 kg/m2. Bariatric surgery has been shown to be the most effective treatment modality for achieving significant weight loss in the morbidly obese.
