- In your opinion, what is the secret for a successful bariatric surgery?
- The secret of a successful bariatric surgery resides in a proper patient selection and most of all in an appropriate follow-up.
- From your point of view, which surgical operation presents the lowest risk rate?
- The safest surgical technique and better cost-benefit ratio is presented by gastric banding, without a doubt.
- From a surgeon’s perspective, what are the benefits of Bioring compared to other products?
- Its size makes it easy to handle, both during the introduction through the trocart and in the retrogastric tunnel.It has a simple and easy-to-use locking system, which allows easy repositioning when necessary. The port low profile and self-locking is, in my opinion, the best on the market because it is comfortable for the patient, it is not difficult to place and easy to find.
