Bariatric patients may face specific clinical problems after surgery, and multidisciplinary long-term follow-up is usually provided in specialized centers. However, physicians, obstetricians, dieticians, nurses, clinical pharmacists, midwives, and physical therapists not specifically trained in bariatric medicine may encounter post-bariatric patients with specific problems in their professional activity. This creates a growing need for dissemination of first level knowledge in the management of bariatric patients. Therefore, the Obesity Management Task Force (OMTF) of the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) decided to produce and disseminate a document containing practical recommendations for the management of post-bariatric patients. The list of practical recommendations included in the EASO/OMTF document is reported in this brief communication.
