The main debates from the case were issues of patient eligibility, body mass index criterion for bariatric surgery, and informed consent. Respondents included bariatric surgeons and members of integrated health (N=237). All answers were kept confidential. Here, we present the results from the survey broken down into three categories: 1) bariatric surgeons based in the United States (n=80), 2) bariatric surgeons based outside the United States (n=29), and 3) members of integrated health based in and outside of the United States (n=128).
