I believe it's true that at a certain weight, it is impossible to do endoscopic surgery.  the equipment may not be long enough to get through the abdominal wall, or maybe it is too hard to fill the abdominal cavity up with Co2 so they can visualize and work on the organs.  All surgery is harder and takes longer and has higher risk for the obese patient.
