Surgical Outcomes

We have defined the overall long-term performance of laparoscopic or open gastric bypass with Roux-en-Y Limb as follows:

Optimal surgical outcome (75 percent): Individuals achieve sustained, major weight loss without significant complications and significantly improve their co-morbid conditions (concurrent diseases).

Sub-optimal surgical outcome (20 percent): Individuals achieve substantial weight loss with or without significant reduction of their co-morbid conditions (concurrent diseases), but fail to achieve their target weight and/or develop complications secondary to their surgical procedure.

Poor surgical outcome (5 percent): A small group of people fail to lose significant weight and/or have unresolved complications secondary to the surgical procedure.
