It is the least invasive of all the bariatric surgery procedures and is the easiest one to make reversible. Most traditional weight loss methods are slower, based on national averages; weight loss is about forty five percent of excess body weight and is a viable option for patients.
Following gastric sleeve surgery, food continues to move through the digestive system naturally, from the time it enters the stomach to the time it is released into the small intestine through the pyloric valve. The primary difference is that after surgery the amount of food that can be eaten at any one time is greatly reduced.
Gastric bypass surgery restricts food intake by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach. The pouch is then connected to a section of the small intestine, allowing food to bypass the lower stomach and the first two parts of the small intestine. This should be viewed as a permanent procedure; the gastric bypass may be reversed.
Duodenal switch surgery is a combination of a gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgery. It is one of the more rare primary treatments for morbid obesity that is usually covered by insurance. The procedure is occasionally done as a secondary procedure after a failed Gastric Band Surgery.
Mini Gastric Bypass is both restrictive and mal-absorptive as the small stomach pouch necessitates earlier satiety in patients. The intestinal bypass causes food to skip the duodenal column where the majority is absorbed into the bloodstream.
