New Study Aimed at Understanding the Effects of Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery study conducted by weight-loss surgeons at Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco hopes to uncover the factors that lead to post-surgery success for obese patients.

(press release from Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco)

San Francisco, CA December 24, 2005 -- Weight-loss surgeons at Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco have launched a new study, "Bariatric Research and Cohort Evaluation Study", or BRACES. The study will follow 40 patients after their participation in any of the four major types of weight loss surgery performed at Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco: Lap Band surgery, Vertical Gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, and Duodenal Switch.

The San Francisco weight loss surgeons, Dr. Gregg Jossart, Dr. Paul Cirangle, and Dr. John Feng, will be conducting the research with the assistance of a research grant from the California Medical Centers for Research in Clinical Excellence. They hope to uncover important information about Bariatric surgery, and how these weight-loss surgery procedures affect sleep quality, diet, exercise, mood, sexual functioning, and the overall health-related quality of life.

Also important in the Bariatric surgery study is whether certain morbid obesity surgeries, like the Lap Band surgery, are more effective than others, such as the gastric bypass. The surgeons will be placing special emphasis on the link between certain hormones that are related to obesity and weight-loss success after surgery. Predictors of reduced morbidity and mortality after weight-loss surgery procedures will also be a primary focus.

Patients will be asked to complete questionnaires, provide extra blood and tissue samples during their labs, and wear a wristwatch like device called an actigraph to monitor sleep quality. All patients undergoing one of the four types of weight loss procedures at Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco are invited to participate in the study.

If you are interested in taking part in this important Bariatric surgery study, please contact the Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco’s patient coordinator, Michelle Nicholl, at 415-923-6522.
