Abstract

This nationwide survey shows that the best profile for a success after gastric banding is a patient <40 years, with an initial BMI <50 kg/m, willing to change his eating habits and to recover or increase his physical activity after surgery and who has been operated by a team usually performing >2 bariatric procedures per week. This study emphasizes that obesity surgery requires a significant experience of the surgical team and a multidisciplinary approach to improve behavioral changes.
