Biography

Trained in minimally invasive surgery in the early ’90s in Montpellier, he founded the bariatric department in a private practice in Marseille in 2000.

With more than 5000 bariatric procedures and more than 500 revision procedures, his work has become a cornerstone of bariatric surgery with the first world series of re-sleeves and of sleeves after gastric banding failure.

His entire list of publications illustrates perfectly his surgical career – the evolution from a young surgeon at the beginning of the laparoscopic era into an international leading figure in bariatric surgery. He continues to prove his interest in new bariatric approaches by developing re-sleeve gastrectomy or spider surgery.

Dr. Patrick Noel has been actively involved in different activities of International Surgical Societies, performing live surgeries in Worldwide Congresses and giving workshops to other bariatric surgeons. He is now bringing his experience to the Gulf and looking into training young surgeons of the region to minimally invasive and robotic surgery.

Procedure

  • Weight Loss Surgery

    Obesity contributes to numerous and varied comorbid conditions. Complications can occur in many organ systems, ranging from cardiovascular to respiratory to orthopedic and even ophthalmologic.

  • Sleeve Gastrectomy

    The sleeve gastrectomy restricts the amount of food you eat by reducing the size of the stomach. The minimally invasive procedure removes a portion of the stomach, making it roughly the size and shape of a banana.

  • Gastric Bypass

    Gastric bypass is one of the most common forms of weight loss surgery. However, as it is surgically heavier than the sleeve gastrectomy, it is being dethroned by the sleeve in the US, France, and South America.

  • Revisions

    In some cases, a sleeve doesn’t lead to the expected results for a certain number reasons, either because the removed part of the stomach was insufficient or because the remaining part has dilated.
