    The gold standard for antireflux surgery called laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication causes an average weight loss of 8.6 pounds according to a study from Australia.

    The average reduction in body mass index (BMI) was 1.6 units, reducing from a BMI of 27.6 to 26.0.

    The study involved 213 patients—85 women and 128 men.

    Women had a greater reduction in BMI than men, and obese patients lost more weight than lean patients.

    “Tthe association between body weight and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is still unclear,” the authors note.

    This is a surgery for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), not for losing weight.
