The objective of the BRAVE study is to demonstrate the feasibility of enrolling patients with high-risk cardiovascular disease (CVD) into a randomized controlled trial of bariatric surgery versus medical weight management (MWM).

Sixty patients will be recruited from ambulatory cardiology clinics affiliated with two Bariatric Centres of Excellence in Ontario:

  • St. Joseph’s Healthcare, Hamilton
  • Ottawa Civic Hospital, Ottawa

HGH/SJHH will start first, with the Ottawa site starting once funds are raised for their site activities.
