What is bariatric surgery?

These are surgeries that involve making small modifications to the digestive system to promote weight loss. They are performed when diet and exercise have not helped to lose weight or due to serious health problems associated with weight.

Types of Bariatric Surgery

Gastric Bypass

It involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting it directly to the small intestine.

Gastric Sleeve

It is a surgical weight loss procedure in which 80% of the stomach is removed, which subsequently acquires a tubular pouch shape, the size and shape of a banana. By removing the stomach, the amount of food that can be consumed is limited. Also, the procedure causes different hormonal changes that help lose weight and alleviate other ailments such as high blood pressure and heart disease.
