Bariatric surgery: Resources and story ideas for reporters

Tip sheet on covering bariatric surgery

Robyn Shelton of the Orlando Sentinel recently wrote a series about bariatric surgery – also known as weight-loss surgery. She looked at the increase in such surgery, complications and concerns, the discrepancy in quality between hospitals performing the surgery, the insurance industry's reluctance to cover bariatric surgery and the increasingly popular gastric banding. Shelton shares her sources and some story ideas with AHCJ members in this tip sheet and AHCJ provides additional resources on the subject.
