ByBandSleeve Research Study

 

We here at Musgrove Park are proud to be the flagship centre for the multi-centred By-Band-Sleeve research study which is co-ordinated the Clinical Trials and Evaluation Unit, University of Bristol. The By-Band-Sleeve research study is the world’s largest randomised control trial comparing the three main surgeries used globally to treat severe and complex obestity; gastric bypass, gastric band and sleeve gastrectomy. The study will be primarily comparing weight, quality of life and cost effectiveness of surgery. We have recruited over 200 patients at Musgrove and over 1000 nationally across 12 participating centres. Recruitment into the study is expected to continue until June 2019. Patients will be followed up by the research team for 8 years from the date they join the study.
