Summary of "Precision Surgery for Obesity."

Precision medicine is targeted towards improving the effectiveness of treatment, reducing the side effects of drugs and reducing medical costs. The application of precision surgery for obesity is a new concept that involves 2 stages: the first stage is to attain a precise obesity surgery, and the second stage is to achieve individualized obese gene therapy. In this article, we discuss the value of precision surgery for obesity, its stages and its future application to improve obesity surgery. Due to recent advancements in medical technologies, genetics, surgical and clinical research; precision surgery for obesity will lead the future of obesity surgery.
