Patients who underwent gastric bypass surgery lost more weight at a faster rate and were better at keeping the pounds off six years after the procedure, compared with those who had gastric banding surgery, a study in the Archives of Surgery revealed. Long-term data on the weight-loss procedures may help doctors better identify treatment options for obese patients, said Robin Blackstone, president of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
