Head of the Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery Department
Trained in Minimally Invasive Surgery in the early '90s by Prof. Domergue in Montpellier, Patrick Noel has become very soon one of the most representative laparoscopic surgeons in the South of France.
Later, he has founded the Bariatric Surgery Department in a private practice in Aubagne (France). With more than 3000 bariatric procedures (sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, duodenal switch, gastric banding) and more than 600 revisional procedures, nowadays his activity has become a cornerstone of the Bariatric Surgery in France.
In December 2012, his experience in the Bariatric field was worldwide recognized during Sleeve Consensus Summit in New York, where he was invited by Prof. Gagner to present the largest experience in revisional surgery from gastric banding to sleeve gastrectomy. Subsequently, this series was published in Surgical Endoscopy.
In fact, 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 resleeve gastrectomy or SPIDER surgery.
Thanks to his entire laparoscopic experience, not only in the bariatric domain, Patrick Noel has been actively involved in the activity of different French Surgical Societies, being elected in the board of: the French Society of Endoscopic Surgery (SFCE), the French Bariatric Society (SOFFCOMM) and the ICYLS (International Club of Young Laparoscopic Surgeons). He is one of the members of the Scientific Board of the Journal de Coeliochirurgie. He is also an active member of the ASMBS (American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery), the IFSO (International Federation Society of Obesity), the ACS (American College of Surgeons) and a reviewer for SOARD (Surgery for Obesity And Related Diseases).
In 2015, he left France to take the position of Head of the Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Department in the UAE.
