Procedure

Bariatric Surgery

Description

Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band, through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).

 
A laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, commonly called a Lap-Band, A Band, or LAGB, is an inflatable silicone device placed around the top portion of the stomach to treat obesity, intended to slow consumption of food and thus the amount of food consumed. Source: Wikipedia
