Gastric Bypass

Bypass treatment is a bariatric surgical procedure used to re-route your digestive system past most of your stomach. This means you digest less food and feel fuller, quicker. The gastric bypass uses special surgical staplers to create a small pouch at the top of your stomach.

This pouch is then connected directly to a section of your small intestine, bypassing the rest of the stomach and small bowel.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

The Sleeve Gastrectomy is one of the principal treatments used to lose weight that is included in the category of bariatric surgery. During a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon removes up to 90% of the stomach, reducing its size and capacity to enhance weight loss.

Because a large portion of the stomach is removed, the patient feels full much quicker, and food intake is limited.
