Obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus should be treated using a multidisciplinary approach, including diet modification, increasing physical activity, behavior modification and drug treatment. Some morbidly obese patients even require minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery. Although in recent years minimally invasive gastrointestinal bariatric surgery in the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus appears to be effective, while problems exist including lack of relevant collaborative departments and multidisciplinary treatment snf low follow-up rate, which are the main reasons for poor outcomes and complications. Therefore, the management of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus and its co-morbidities should be minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery, multidisciplinary treatment, and long-term follow-up.
