LABS-3 Psychosocial
Psychosocial Issues and Bariatric Surgery

The overall goal of this study is to obtain detailed information that will allow a careful assessment of psychopathology, quality of life and eating behavior pre-surgically and at regular intervals for 2 years after the surgical intervention.


  1. Patients undergoing bariatric surgery will experience significant decreases in the rates of psychopathology, in particular depressive illness, and significant improvements in quality of life, post-operatively.
  2. Untreated psychopathology that persists well beyond the surgery (e.g. to one-year follow-up) or that develops post-operatively will be associated with less weight loss and decreased quality of life.
  3. Untreated psychopathology at the time of bariatric surgery, including affective disorders and substance abuse/alcohol abuse will be associated with increased short-term (e.g. 90 day) complications (e.g. problems with plugging, vomiting, and dehydration)
  4. Syndromal/subsyndromal eating disorders prior to surgery including binge eating disorder and night eating syndrome will be associated with eating disorder symptoms and less weight loss at long-term follow-up.
