Gastric bypass surgery leads to greater weight loss

43463.jpegTwo new studies have found that gastric bypass surgery lead to better long-term results including greater weight loss, resolution of diabetes and improved quality of life compared with sleeve gastrectomy and "lap-band" surgery.

The most common surgical procedure for treating diabetes in the United States is the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, more commonly referred to as gastric bypass surgery.

In 2001, the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, also known as lap-band, was introduced as a less invasive alternative to gastric bypass, according to Times of India.

David Ross, CEO of the UK's leading gastric band provider The Hospital Group, said "It is well-known that obesity carries with it a number of associated problems, such as diabetes, sleep apnoea or hypertension. Many of our patients report that these simply disappear as the weight drops off after surgery.

However, the risks of more serious conditions such as heart disease are really life-threatening and we do have patients that have literally been given an ultimatum by their Doctors to lose weight, Private Healthcare UK reports.
