The present state of minimally invasive bariatric surgery is the result of separate but parallel progress in the fields of bariatric surgery and minimally invasive surgery, with the ultimate combination of the two. Thus, minimally invasive surgery evolved from its early beginnings to the performance of advanced laparoscopic procedures, prior to the establishment and acceptance of the techniques for minimally invasive bariatric surgery. Similarly, bariatric surgery evolved substantially such that the establishment of bariatric surgical procedures using minimally invasive techniques was initially a matter of adapting accepted bariatric surgical procedures to the minimally invasive methodology.
