The Le Goff Technique, from the name of the surgeon, Jean-Yves Le Goff who developed it, has been shown to be remarkably effective over a period of 20 years, with significant weight loss and above all, zero operative mortality, unlike other procedures currently performed.
The Le Goff Technique shows incontestably excellent results :
- Zero mortality, very low post-operative morbidity
- Reversible, adjustable, minimally-invasive procedure, without mutilation
- Very significant reduction in dilatation issues associated with band slippage and complications
- Considerable short-, medium- and long-term weight loss with very high satiety
- No nutritional deficiencies and much higher quality of life
- Regular monitoring and treatment of patients over time
- Extremely low rate of repeat surgery
It has enabled morbidly obese patients to lose an average of 62% of their excess weight in five years. This excess weight loss is between 70% and 100% over a period of 1 to 20 years.
This procedure provides more lasting results than simple gastric banding without fixation, and with zero mortality and morbidity far lower than the sleeve or gastric bypass procedures.
The question is: should sleeve and bypass surgery still be performed today?
