Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass is a surgical operation that helps you lose weight by altering how your stomach and small intestines manage food. You will be full quicker than before the procedure. The amount of food you can consume at one time will be reduced. Shrinking part of the intestines lessens the amount of food absorbed and results in weight loss. In a Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, a tiny portion of the stomach is used to create a new stomach pouch, about the size of an egg. The smaller stomach is straight linked to the middle portion of the small intestine, bypassing the remaining stomach

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve)

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery, one of the bariatric procedures, is a form of Gastroplasty. The Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is a bariatric procedure in which the surgeon removes approximately 75 – 85 percent of the stomach, shaping the remaining stomach into a tube or “sleeve.” It can be used as a first stage operation prior to a Gastric Bypass surgery or as a definite procedure.
