I agree. What do you want to say about Bariatric Surgery? When writing a thesis typically you need to be focused enough so that you are not writing hundreds of pages to satisfy your topic.


Think along the lines of, “Bariatric Surgery’s growing popularity is causing an increased number of deaths in America.” Or “The success of Bariatric Surgery has saved millions of lives and has proved ultimately successful despite its limited number of risks.”


Personally, I know little to nothing about Bariatric Surgery. However, I do know your thesis needs to say something somewhat focused, and remember your thesis can evolve as you do research.

It would really help us to be able to give you a better answer if you could tell us more about what it is you need to know.

For example, are you supposed to be writing an argument about it?  If so, you could talk about whether you think it is a good way to help someone lose weight of if you think it is too dangerous or just not the right way to go about things.

Or maybe you would want to talk about how it is done and what the dangers and potential benefits are (in case you are supposed to be just writing a factual paper).

In any case, feel free to let us know if you can give us more information.
