Bariatric Surgery Techniques

The most common bariatric surgical procedures;
Sleeve gastrectomy is performed by removing about 80 percent of the stomach. The remaining stomach is a tubular pouch that resembles a banana. The surgery reduces the amount of food that can fit in your stomach, making you feel full more quickly. The surgery has a major impact on gut hormones, which affect various factors such as hunger, satiety and blood sugar control.

Gastric bypass surgery, also called Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, is performed in three steps. First, the surgeon creates a small pouch in the upper part by stapling your stomach. The stapler makes your stomach much smaller. This causes you to eat less because you feel full sooner.


The surgeon then divides your small intestine in two and connects the lower part directly to the small stomach pouch. Food bypasses most of your stomach and the upper part of your small intestine, allowing your body to absorb fewer calories.


The surgeon then reconnects the upper part of the small intestine to a new position lower than the lower part of the small intestine. This displacement allows digestive fluids from the stomach to flow from the bypassed part of the small intestine to the lower part of the small intestine. Food can therefore be fully digested. Because the bypass changes hormones, bacteria and other substances in the gastrointestinal tract, the patient's appetite and metabolism can be affected. Gastric bypass is difficult to reverse but a surgeon can do so if medically necessary.

The upper part of the stomach is cut off to form a smaller tube and the connection between the stomach and the small intestine is changed. In this way, food is directed through the stomach tube into the small intestine, bypassing part of the stomach. This promotes weight loss through reduced food intake and calorie absorption.


MGB increases the chances of curing obesity-related diseases such as diabetes (type 2 diabetes), hypertension and sleep apnea. It also carries less risk of vitamin deficiency compared to other types of gastric bypass methods.

Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenum or so-called "mixed surgery" is a surgical procedure. It involves two procedures. First, a smaller stomach pouch is created by removing part of the stomach, very similar to sleeve gastrectomy. Then a large part of the small intestine is bypassed. This reduces the amount of calories taken in and nutrients absorbed. Digestive fluids flow from the stomach into the other intestinal tract and mix with the food as it enters the colon.
