Types of Bariatric Surgery

There are various Bariatric or metabolic procedures that are being performed to tackle the issue of morbid obesity, these include, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, which is the most commonly performed procedure worldwide, where the size of the stomach is reduced and the amount of food that you take goes down.

Also, various bypass procedures are being done where rerouting of the intestine is done in addition to reducing the size of the stomach such as Roux-en-y gastric bypass, mini gastric bypass, Duodenojejunal bypass, and so on. These are done by laparoscopy through small holes and no bigger cuts are made.

Also, recently various endoscopic procedures are being performed for those patients who don’t have very high BMI but are obese and need weight loss.
Having said that, one size doesn’t fit all, and that’s why the procedure that will benefit you the most has to be decided by your bariatric expert in consultation with you.

Taking into consideration, your weight and BMI, the medical conditions that are associated with your weight, the weight loss that we are aiming at, and your fitness for the same. Also, your age needs to be taken into consideration. So, see a Bariatric Expert and take the first step towards being the new you.
