Bariatric Surgery Types?
- A common procedure is a Sleeve Gastrectomy or a Gastric Sleeve. The surgery is a weight loss procedure that involves stapling off the stomach, and removing a portion of it.
- A Gastric Bypass surgery reduces the stomach to a narrow pouch, and joins a short segment of the bowel to the new stomach to form the bypass.
- Gastric Band surgery is a procedure that involves a silicon band wrapped around the top part of the stomach so only a small fraction of food can be contained in the stomach. A number of patients who have previously had a gastric band or adjustable gastric band are now facing weight gain, poor quality eating or reflux and it is becoming increasingly common to need to remove these gastric band. It may be possible to before perform a sleeve gastrectomy at a later date.
