In this operation 2/3 of the stomach will be removed, which gives the patient a sense of fullness with only a small amount of food.
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
A small pouch is created at the top of the stomach to make it smaller. This is done via stapling or a plastic band.Fewer calories absorbed means a greater weight loss to the patient.
Laparoscopic Gastric Banding
A gastric banding procedure involves placing an adjustable band around the top of the stomach via keyhole surgery making a 30cc gastric pouch above the band, and an access port inserted deep under the skin, which is connected to the band by special tubing.
