Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is a minimally invasive bariatric surgery used in the treatment of Obesity. Sleeve gastrectomy is now being offered as a stand-alone procedure for morbidly obese patients. The procedure involves removing the lateral 2/3rds of the stomach is reduced with a stapling device. It is usually done laparoscopically but is not reversible. It basically leaves a stomach tube instead of a stomach pouch.

Gastric Bypass

Here a small stomach pouch is created to restrict food intake. Next, a Y-shaped section of the small intestine is attached to the pouch to allow food to bypass the lower stomach, the duodenum (the first segment of the small intestine), and the first portion of the jejunum (the second segment of the small intestine). This bypass reduces the absorption of nutrients and thereby reduces the calorie intake.
