The research is designed to address the influence of bariatric surgery on the musculoskeletal system and indicate whether it is positive or negative. Basically, it is a theoretical and systematic review study, which aim to analyze several studies in relevance to the topic of interest to achieve the main objective of research. It depends on international surgical communities to observe the desired impact of bariatric surgery on MSK. On the other hand, there were studies disagreed the main hypothesis as it claims that this type of surgery increase the damages within MSK system but there were large number of studies that supported the undeniable benefits of the association. Also, it impacts on other chronic diseases as for example diabetes, cardiovascular, kidney, etc. and lowers the probabilities of early death. Overall, the generated association improves the quality of life through enhancing the physical and mental health.
