Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery changes the size of your stomach as well as your ability to absorb calories to help you succeed at long-term weight loss.
Adjustable gastric banding, commonly known as Lap-Band® or Realize Band™ surgery, is surgery to limit the amount of food you can eat at one time.
A sleeve gastrectomy is a type of weight loss surgery where surgeons reduce the size of the stomach. Your stomach will be stapled and divided. About 80% of your stomach will be removed.
During vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) surgery, four rows of vertical staples are placed, and a small opening is created by securing a silastic ring near the end of this staple line.
Commonly referred to as a DS, this surgery is a combination of the sleeve gastrectomy and gasteric bypass. It changes your ability to absorb calories to help you succeed at long term weight loss.
