In this key lecture, Dr. Higa focuses on optimizing primary gastric bypass and addresses the following concern: do we have a gold standard and/or should we consider other techniques? Dr. Higa, specialized in bariatric and metabolic surgery, explains the reasons why until now it has not been possible to reach a consensus on the gold standard surgical procedure for the treatment of obesity and emphasizes the importance of making decisions based on the individual characteristics of each patient, especially after the failure of the treatment performed.
