Core Tip: In this minireview article, we try to provide a broad introduction to the impacts of bariatric surgery on organ transplantation outcomes rather than as an exhaustive review. Moreover, this review will focus on major transplantations and type of bariatric surgery among morbidly obese patients. Within the broad categories of organ transplantation, we then conclude with remarks about the outcomes of bariatric surgery among patients with combined organ transplantation. Where possible, the readers are suggested to refer to the numerous comprehensive clinical studies reporting the predictors of adverse outcomes of organ transplantation following bariatric surgery.
