Currently, there are two basic approaches to weight loss surgery: restrictive operations and operations that combine restriction and malabsorption. Restrictive procedures (such as an adjustable gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy) simply limit the amount of food that a person can eat at one time. Combination procedures (such as gastric bypass) help give patients the feeling of satisfaction from only a small amount of food and lessen the amount of calories that are absorbed from the food eaten.

Gastric Bypass

Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass is the most commonly performed bariatric procedure. It is a combination procedure (both restrictive and malabsorptive). The stomach is reduced in size, and parts of the small intestine, where most of the calories are absorbed, are re-routed.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a type of restrictive weight loss operation. It reduces the amount of food you can eat by reducing the size of the stomach. A thin vertical sleeve, or narrow section of the stomach, is created by using a stapling device, removing approximately 80% of the total volume of the stomach.
