Laproscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is safer than other procedures.
  • In this procedure, 80% of the stomach is stapled and removed which induces weight loss by restriction in food intake and early satiety, due to loss of hunger producing hormones.
  • Digestion and absorption is normal.
  • By eating less the body draws the required energy from its own fat stores and thus you lose weight.
The R OUX-EN-Y Gastric Bypass
  • In this procedure, a small, 15 to 20 cc, pouch is created at the top of the stomach.
  • The small bowel is divided. The bilio-pancreatic limb is reattached to the small bowel and the other end is connected to the pouch, creating the Roux limb.
  • The small pouch releases food slowly, causing a sensation of fullness with very little food intake.
  • The bilio-pancreatic limb preserves the action of the digestive tract.
Bilio Pancreatic Diversion With Duodenal Switch
  • In this procedure, greater weight loss can happen with less dietary compliance from the patient.
  • There may be an increased risk of malnutrition and vitamin deficiency and intermittent diarrhea can also occur.
  • Constant follow-up is needed for this procedure in order to monitor for complications.
