Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy – is a partial gastrectomy where the majority of the greater curvature of the stomach is removed and a tubular stomach is created. In 2016 this was the most commonly performed bariatric procedure in the world. This procedure is strictly a restrictive procedure.
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass – is a surgical procedure that creates a small stomach pouch from the existing stomach and attaches it to the small intestine.
Lap Band® Surgery – is performed by placing a silicone band around the top section of the stomach. A small tube connects the band to a port placed subcutaneously in the abdomen. Injecting saline into the subcutaneous port increases the degree of restriction around the stomach.
