Roux-en-Y Gastric Surgery Success Rates

Gastric surgery performed using the Roux-en-Y technique has a remarkably high success rate with a low incidence of adverse side effects. According to a report published in the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine, approximately 70 percent of patients who undergo the procedure keep more than half of excess weight off at least five years after the procedure. In another report, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease stated that many Roux-en-Y patients keep 60 to 70 percent of their excess weight off for a full decade or longer.

LAP-BAND® System Success Rates

Two separate studies have shown good-to-excellent results for LAP-BAND® System patients. In one study of 271 American patients, an average of 47 percent of excess weight was achieved at three years after surgery. In another of 63 American patients, an average of 53 percent of excess weight was achieved during a three-year span.

REALIZE® Band Success Rates

During a three-year clinical trial, patients who underwent REALIZE® Band surgery lost a mean of 43 percent of their excess weight and reduced their average body mass index (BMI) from 44 to 36 within a year. The latter results were maintained over the three-year period.

Gastric Sleeve Success Rates

According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, patients who undergo gastric sleeve surgery lose between 50 and 66 percent of their total weight after surgery. Another study published in the Obesity Facts journal found that patients can lose up to 60 percent of their excess weight within a single year of undergoing the procedure.
