“The USA is not alone when it comes to making poor lifestyle choices. Parents set an example for children, so if the parent would opt for surgery to control their weight problem why not have the procedure performed on their child.
This article is just one example of how absurd surgery decisions can be made based upon a mis guided doctors advice. How can this Saudia Arabian doctor justify performing bariatric surgery on a three year old prior to recommending himself and the parents stay out of dunking donuts. I do mean nuts. If you can’t control what a three year old eats there is a much bigger problem, that is the parents and the doctor.”
