Psychological Symptoms Among Adolescents Enrolled in a Bariatric Surgery Program
This study will examine the interaction of psychological factors and serious overweight to determine if particular patterns of psychological symptoms are helpful in predicting outcomes of weight loss surgery.
Patients from the Center of Adolescent Bariatric Surgery (CABS) program at the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York Presbyterian will be asked to participate in a longitudinal prospective study of psychopathology among severely obese adolescents. Additionally, the psychological symptoms of this group will be compared to other treatment-seeking obese adolescents.
The investigators hypothesize that:
- Adolescents receiving bariatric surgery will demonstrate significant reductions in body weight, eating pathology, and other symptoms after receiving bariatric surgery.
- Adolescents enrolled in the bariatric surgery program will report more psychological problems than other treatment-seeking obese adolescents.
