Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a medical procedure performed to help individuals with severe obesity lose weight and improve their health. It involves altering the digestive system to limit food intake, decrease nutrient absorption, or both.

  • Gastric Bypass: This procedure creates a small stomach pouch and reroutes the digestive tract to bypass a portion of the small intestine. It restricts food intake and reduces nutrient absorption.
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy: A portion of the stomach is removed, leaving a smaller "sleeve" that limits food intake and reduces hunger-inducing hormones.
  • Gastric Banding: A band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch, which limits the amount of food that can be eaten.
