Babatunde Bariatric Surgery and Low Back Pain INTRODUCTION Low back pain (LBP) is a common health problem. Though, by itself, not a life threatening disease, it is a common cause of work-related disability and sickness absence. 1 – 3 Some of the common risk factors for LBP include psychosocial distress and cigarette smoking. 4,5 Obesity, in particular, has been linked to LBP and overall musculoskeletal (MSK) pain. 4,6,7 However, it is not well understood whether there is a causal relationship between the two. 8 It has been postulated that in obese patients, excess adipose tissue exerts additional mechanical pressure on weight bearing joints, such as the lumbar spine and knee, and may thus incite or worsen pain. 9 Bariatric surgeries, such as vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG), adjustable gastric band (AGB), Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), and sleeve gastrectomy (SG), are proven methods of weight loss.
