About bariatric surgery
About bariatric surgery

Bariatric surgery is a group of surgeries aimed at weight loss by making changes in the digestive tract. These surgeries are suggested when a person is unable to lose weight by diet and exercise. Weight loss surgery is also recommended when a person is suffering from health conditions due to their weight.

Types of bariatric surgery

Gastric bypass – This surgery involves creating a small pouch near your stomach that directly connects to the small intestine. Through gastric bypass, the food directly enters your pouch bypassing the stomach.

Sleeve gastrectomy – In this procedure, a large portion of your stomach is surgically removed resulting in a small tube-shaped stomach.

Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD/DS) – BPD/DS is a procedure that involves sleeve gastrectomy followed by a procedure that connects your intestine to the duodenum near the stomach resulting in significant weight loss.
