Bariatric Gastric Bypass Operations Performed

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
The Roux-en-Y (pronounced "roo-on-why") gastric bypass is currently the most commonly performed weight loss operation in the United States. Roughly 70% of American weight loss surgeons use it as their primary weight loss operation. It has been around for over 30 years and has been demonstrated over and over to provide an excellent balance of weight loss and manageable side effects. For these reasons, the gastric bypass is considered by many surgeons and patients alike to represent the "gold standard" weight loss operation.

Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch
Also called Extensive Gastric Bypass with Duodenal Switch and Gastric Resection
The biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch goes by many names. Some refer to it by the initials BPD/DS. Many just call it the "duodenal switch" for short. The National Institute of Health refers to the procedure as an "extensive gastric bypass with duodenal switch." While less commonly performed than the gastric bypass, this operation has received a great deal of attention recently, particularly on the internet, because it provides excellent weight loss while allowing you to eat larger portions that a gastric bypass patient.

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band
The Lap-Band is a small device made of silicone rubber which is wrapped around the very uppermost portion of the stomach. Gastric banding is a purely restrictive procedure, which means that it works by decreasing the functional size of the stomach. The Lap-Band turns the stomach into an hourglass shape -- the upper portion of the hourglass is called the stomach pouch. The food you eat quickly fills the pouch, then empties very slowly through the constriction created by the band, just like sand passing through an hourglass.

Laparoscopic or open bariatric surgery, such as gastric banding or bypass is not an easy solution to morbid obesity and weight loss. It is a serious surgical procedure, involving health risks. To produce lasting weight loss it requires a long-term patient commitment to eating a healthy diet and following a regular program of physical exercise. Life-long use of nutritional supplements may also be necessary. So, before deciding, discuss your options fully with your doctor. © 2003-2017 Bariatric-Surgery.Info - Terms - Contact - Information - Resources
