Types of Obesity Surgery

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

This is the current gold standard obesity surgical procedure. In this, a small gastric pouch of 15-20ml is created, which leads to a reduction of food intake at a time.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

In this restricive procedure, the capacity of stomach is reduced to approximately 100ml, so the patient feels full early during a meal. It also shifts the hormonal balance so he/she feels less hungry between meals.
