Types of Bariatric Surgery
Gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y procedure)
This is the most common gastric bypass procedure performed today. Your surgeon cuts across the top of your stomach, sealing it off from the rest of your stomach, creating a small pouch that can hold only about an ounce of food.
Next, your surgeon attaches part of the small intestine directly to the pouch. As a result, food goes into the small stomach pouch then into the part of the small intestine that’s attached to it – bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine (entering directly into the middle part of your small intestine).
This procedure reduces the amount of food you can eat at one time, and it reduces the absorption of nutrients.
Also called a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, this is a newer type of bariatric surgery in which your surgeon will remove most of your stomach. The remaining portions of your stomach are joined together using surgical staples.
Your new, smaller stomach is shaped like a tube and is about the size of a banana. It limits the amount of food you can eat – and calories your body can absorb – by making you feel full after eating only small amounts.
In this procedure, your surgeon positions an inflatable band around the upper part of your stomach. When the band is inflated, it acts like a belt, separating your stomach into two parts and creating a small pouch at the top to hold food. The band limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after eating small amounts.
The band can be periodically adjusted so it restricts more or less food..
What Type of Weight-Loss Surgery is Right for Me?
It all depends on your individual situation. Through a complete and honest assessment, your surgeon will consider many factors including your body mass index, eating habits, any previous surgery, your health problems and ability to withstand surgery, and the risks of each procedure
