The changes in risks of developing coronary heart disease in morbidly obese patients after
different weight loss interventions have not been extensively studied. The objective of this
study is to investigate whether an intensive lifestyle intervention program in a tertiary
care clinic (Spesialsykehuset for Rehabilitering) is comparable with bariatric surgery in
decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease in these patients.
