As in any operation , there are risks. We must point out that the risks to health involved in this operation are far fewer than those associated with obesity.
Therefore, the mortality of medical treatment is 6 times higher than surgically treated.
The most serious complications are:

- Anastomotic leaks.
Our results with laparoscopic Bypass gastric with band in more than 1,600 surgical cases are:
- Pulmonary embolism 0%
- Anastomotic leaks: 1%
- Mortality: 0.14%
