Some risk: Modern gastric bypass surgery is much safer than it used to be, with a risk of death around 1% and other complications around 40%. The risk seems to be worth it though because the risk of death after successful surgery goes down 89% over five years. So if 100 people have gastric bypass, about one will die from the surgery, but 89 will survive longer than they would have without the surgery!
