Another report from Dr. Robert Brueck MD, Fort Myers plastic surgeon:

I think we all can agree obesity is truly a rising problem in America.

It affects all age groups – young and old, but rarely do massively obese people live to “old age”.

Two of the more popular procedures include the highly marketed “lap band” and gastric bypass. Which is better?

Well the answer may now be known. A recent article in Archives of Surgery shows gastric bypass had faster and more sustained levels of weight loss compared to the lab band. The study involved more than 400 people in Switzerland.

(I knew that Swiss chocolate was bad!)
