Choosing an appropriate surgery is a difficult choice. There is no right answer. The surgery that you choose is a personal decision based on your habits, risk aversion, and lifestyle. This bariatric surgery test will help provide some insight into weight loss procedures that may be best for you.
This test was created to make your decision easier. It is not intended to replace the advice of your surgeon. A candid discussion regarding your surgical options is always recommended prior to choosing a procedure.
Factors such as aversion to foreign bodies (Lap Band), dietary history, risk aversion (gastric bypass), ability to incorporate regular exercise, and your ability to attend regular follow-up appointments are considered, among others, in the results.
If you’d like an in-depth comparison of gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery, this article is for you. To find out why some patients regain weight and why others are able to maintain their weight loss check out our Complete Guide To Bariatric Surgery.
