Abstract

Metabolic surgery can cause amelioration, resolution, and possible cure of type 2 diabetes. Bariatric surgery is metabolic surgery. In the future, there will be metabolic surgery operations to treat type 2 diabetes that are not focused on weight loss. These procedures will rely on neurohormonal modulation related to the gut as well as outside the peritoneal cavity. Metabolic procedures are and will always be in flux as surgeons seek the safest and most effective operative modality; there is no enduring gold standard operation. Metabolic bariatric surgery for type 2 diabetes is more than part of the clinical armamentarium, it is an invitation to perform basic research and to achieve fundamental scientific knowledge.
