Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a diversity of techniques performed on individuals who have obesity. Weight loss is attained by plummeting the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through the exclusion of a part of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic redirection with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-directing the minor digestive tract to a little stomach sack (gastric bypass surgery).
