  1. High Degree of weight loss in most patient.
  2. Weight loss. Follow up data indicate 75-80% of excess weight compared to 50-70 percent weight loss for Roun –en-Y gastric bypass patients is lost at 2 years.
  3. the larger-than-usual stomach allows BPD patients to eat significantly more food than RYGBP patients
  4. Greater stomach capacity (200-250 mls) therefore can eat a small main meal instead of an entre portion.
  5. Improvements in the “co-morbidities” of obesity-mood, mobility, exercise capacity and sleeping patterns
  6. talk about obesity surgery as being not just life transforming but also life saving, nowhere is this more true than for BPD/Bandinaro patient.
