      Abstract: Kevin Wing, MD, FRCSC Alastair Younger, MD A study of wait times for a pathologically and geographically diverse group of patients found that the average journey from referral to surgery was worrisomely long at 59.5 weeks, and that more regional variation existed for consultation wait times than for surgery wait times. Methods: Currently, 49 orthopaedic surgeons from five BC health authorities contribute anonymized scheduling data to a secure server that aggregates information about key time points: the date a patient is referred for surgical consultation, the date consultation occurs, the date a decision is made regarding surgery, and the date of surgery. read more

    • Authors: rplunkettboyle
      Abstract: Jacqueline Chang, MD Nam Nguyen, MD Sharadh Sampath, MD Nooshin Alizadeh-Pasdar, RD, PhD Patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass should be prepared to recognize complications such as anastomotic leak and dumping syndrome, and to follow instructions regarding dietary progression, nutritional supplementation, and exercise. Patients who have undergone sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass are typically discharged from hospital 1 to 2 days after surgery and followed closely by a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals. Before surgery, patients will have been counseled extensively on recognizing complications such as anastomotic leak, internal hernia, ulcer, dumping syndrome, and gallstone formation.

  • Bariatric surgical options and future directions
    • Authors: rplunkettboyle
      Abstract: Ekua Yorke, MD, FRCSC Many patients with obesity-related comorbidities meet the criteria for bariatric surgery but do not pursue treatment, even though excellent outcomes are possible with procedures such as the laparoscopic vertical sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. The adverse effects of obesity impact every aspect of the health care system. Studies have demonstrated that diet, lifestyle modifications, and currently available pharmaceutical agents are relatively ineffective in treating severe obesity in the long term.[1] Bariatric surgery is the only evidence-based approach for sustainable weight loss in patients with severe obesity.
