INDEPENDENT CONFIRMATION OF EXCELLENT RESULTS IN THE MINI-GASTRIC BYPASS 

Background: The initial reported results of the
Mini-Gastric Bypass (MGB) have been remarkably good. 
The purpose of this study was to perform an independent unbiased analysis of the
outcomes.   

Methods: An impartial certified public accounting
(CPA) firm was engaged to independently assess the outcomes of a sample of  MGB
patients. The review consisted of a structured telephone interview performed
between June 4-8 and 11-15, 2001. Of 1,082 MGB patients who were more than six
months after survey, 180 patients  (17%) were randomly selected by the CPA firm
for study.  One patient declined to participate in the study (0.6%.)
The data collection tool used for the survey was created
and the patient selection were performed independently by the CPA firm.

Results: The patients were found to be highly
satisfied. Both preoperative patient desires for
health status improvement and weight loss were consistently satisfied. The
overall satisfaction score was reported by 100% of the patients at a level 5
(range 1-5) the highest level possible.  If the one patient that declined
participation was judged as dissatisfied the overall patient satisfaction rate
would be99.4%. 
All of the patients said they would recommend this surgery to
a friend or a family member and would have the surgery again
.
