Which Bariatric Surgery has most weight loss?

Which Bariatric Surgery has most weight loss?

These slides from The Obesity Society's American Board of Obesity Medicine Exam Preparation

Dr. John Morton made these slides.

I had 67% EBWL at 13.5 mos with diet. 
and 52% EBWL at 8 yrs with diet medicine 

 Sleeve gastrectomy not on this data.  SG might be the most popular surgery now.  It allows young people to drink alcohol.
It doesn't have as much malnutrition as Roux N-Y Gastric Bypass or the Biliopancreatic Diversion Duodenal Switch. 

GS was the first part of the bigger BPD/DS.  Now that these surgeries are done laproscopically and have much better outcomes, GS and BPD/DS have become their own surgery.  
GS can later be upgraded to BPD/DS if it fails.
