Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Obesity clinic. Obese woman having a swab taken during a pre-assessment consultation prior to weight loss (bariatric) surgery. The swab will be tested for the presence of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). If MRSA is present it will need to be treated before the woman is able to undergo surgery. Surgery can be used to treat obese individuals that have been unable to lose weight through diet and exercise. As with all surgical procedures there is a risk of side-effects, including death.

Release details: Model release available. Property release not required.
