Surgeon & Program Outcomes Matter – A Lot!

Patient outcomes are not uniform between individual surgeons and programs. Some surgeons and programs achieve better weight loss results and lower complication rates than others.

Because outcomes are not uniform, knowing a surgeon’s/program’s record of actual patient outcomes is necessary to be able to judge surgeon/program quality and performance.

Most surgeons and programs, however, don’t make their outcomes statistics known. This is nice for surgeons and programs (less accountability), but not ideal for patients.

Dr. Oliak has been publishing his outcomes statistics since starting his Orange County weight loss surgery practice in 2002. For the outcomes that matter most – weight loss, early major complications (e.g. leak), and late complications (e.g. acid reflux, reoperation) – Dr. Oliak’s statistics beat the industry benchmarks, often by a wide margin.*

How does Dr. Oliak and his Orange County weight loss surgery program achieve industry-leading outcomes? By prioritizing quality of surgery, patient education, and frequent follow-up after surgery.

Weight Loss Surgery

Weight Loss Surgery (also known as bariatric surgery, or obesity surgery) is by far the most effective and most lasting treatment for obesity. The two most commonly performed weight loss surgeries are gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass surgery.

The reason for why weight loss surgery works so well is because it changes the biology that regulates bodyweight. In effect, weight loss surgery changes the bodyweight “set-point” to a new, lower, healthier weight.

This biology change, in Dr. Oliak’s view, is what makes weight loss surgery so compelling. Obesity is a disease of weight regulation, and weight loss surgery changes the biology of weight regulation. No nonsurgical method of weight loss does this.

Surgery changes “set-point”

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeve surgery (also known as sleeve gastrectomy, or vertical sleeve) is the most popular weight loss surgery in the United States, accounting for 70-75% of all first-time weight loss operations.

There are good reasons for why gastric sleeve surgery is so popular. First, it is a great operation for weight loss, and for the resolution or improvement of weight-related medical problems. Second, it is less invasive and lower risk than gastric bypass surgery, which is the primary alternative weight loss operation.

One word of caution – gastric sleeve patient outcomes (weight loss results, complication rates) vary over a wide range between individual surgeons and programs. For this reason, your choice of surgeon and program is an important decision.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery (also known simply as gastric bypass) is the 2nd most popular weight loss surgery in the United States, accounting for 20-25% of all first-time weight loss operations.

Gastric bypass surgery, similar to sleeve gastrectomy surgery, is highly effective for weight loss, and for the improvement or resolution of weight-related medical issues. Gastric bypass surgery is particularly effective for the treatment of acid reflux and diabetes.

One word of caution – gastric bypass patient outcomes (weight loss results, complication rates) vary over a wide range between individual surgeons and programs. For this reason, your choice of surgeon and program is an important decision.
