Abstract
Introduction Bariatric weight loss surgery is one of the most effective treatments for severe obesity. Research shows that the availability of healthcare services pre and post bariatric surgery improves behavioural change and weight loss outcomes. The aim of this systematic review is to assess the evidence relating to the use of telemedicine for providing health services to bariatric surgery patients. Methods A search was conducted using PubMed, EMBASE, CINAHL, PsycNET and SCOPUS. Original research relating to telemedicine for bariatric surgery patients published in peer-reviewed journals were included. Results Database search returned 258 references and a total of 10 studies were included in the review. Six studies assessed use, feasibility and acceptance of telemedicine by patients/practitioners. Studies also examined the use of telemedicine for weight loss, changes in physical activity, diet/eating or other behavioural changes. Two studies were randomised controlled trials; one showed a significant difference in outcomes between intervention and control group. Discussion This review suggests that telemedicine may be a potential method for providing healthcare services to bariatric surgery patients. However, the current evidence base does not allow for definitive conclusions.
