what are the 4 types of bariatric surgery?

There are several types of bariatric surgery, each with its own benefits and considerations. The four main types of bariatric surgery are:

  1. Gastric Bypass Surgery:
    Gastric bypass, also known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is a popular bariatric surgery that involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting it to the small intestine. This rerouting of the digestive system reduces the amount of food you can eat and alters the absorption of nutrients, leading to significant weight loss.
  2. Sleeve Gastrectomy:
    Sleeve gastrectomy, often referred to as gastric sleeve surgery, involves the removal of a large portion of the stomach, leaving behind a smaller, sleeve-shaped stomach. This procedure restricts the amount of food you can consume and reduces the production of hunger-inducing hormones, helping you feel full faster and eat less.
  3. Gastric Banding Surgery:
    Gastric banding, or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, involves placing an inflatable band around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch. The band can be adjusted to control the size of the pouch and the rate at which food passes through, promoting weight loss by limiting food intake and inducing a feeling of fullness.
  4. Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch (BPD/DS):
    BPD/DS is a complex bariatric surgery that combines two procedures. The first step is similar to a sleeve gastrectomy, where a portion of the stomach is removed to reduce its size. The second step involves rerouting the intestines to limit the absorption of calories and nutrients, resulting in substantial weight loss.

Each type of bariatric surgery has its own benefits and considerations, and the most suitable option for you will depend on your individual health needs and weight loss goals. It’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific situation.

Gastric Band

Gastric Banding is a surgical treatment to treat obesity. It is a minimally invasive, quick, reversible, and adjustable surgical procedure that decreases the size of the stomach to reduce food intake. It is done by placing an inflatable band around the top of the stomach, which results in a person feels fuller with less food. Post-surgery it is necessary to follow a strict liquid diet, with gradual inclusion of a soft diet. The procedure can result in significant weight loss if followed religiously. The gastric band is fitted by the surgeon under general anesthesia.


The gastric Balloon is a nonsurgical revolutionary alternative for patients who have failed diet attempts or have a lifestyle that restricts them to undergo any physical exercise. The balloon creates a feeling of fullness, allowing you to eat less without feeling hungry.

The patient swallows a capsule containing a deflated balloon, connected to a hollow plastic tube. Once in the stomach the balloon is filled with fluid and the tube is detached from the balloon and removed from the mouth. The balloon stays in the stomach for three to twelve months after which it is removed. It is a good way to lose 10 to 15% of total body weight.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

A sleeve gastrectomy is performed for people who are excessively obese and have serious health problems. The surgeon removes a part of the stomach and creates a sleeve or tube out of the rest. The new banana-shaped stomach is much smaller in size and makes the person feel fuller quickly and helps him eat less. The surgery does not have any effect on the natural movement of food and allows essential vitamins and nutrients to be fully absorbed.

In clinical studies, patients lost an average of 55% of their excess weight, and have been shown to help resolve type2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnea, and high cholesterol.

The surgeon will explain the possible risk factors and post-operation care.

Laparoscopic Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass, also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is a weight-loss surgery in which a  small pouch is created in the stomach and connected directly to the small intestine. Post-surgery the swallowed food goes to the pouch and then directly to the small intestine, bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine. This will help in reducing the absorption of calorie intake considerably. Gastric bypass is done when all other methods of weight loss have failed and you are at risk of serious health conditions.

The patient may have to meet certain medical guidelines to qualify for weight-loss surgery which might include an extensive screening process. The patient must also be willing to make permanent changes to lead a healthier lifestyle.

The surgeon will explain the possible risk factors and post-operation care.

Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass

Mini gastric bypass procedure is a minimally invasive, short, simple, and successful laparoscopic weight loss surgery. In this procedure, 2 to 7 feet of intestines are bypassed, unlike the Gastric bypass which completely bypasses the small intestines.

This surgery consumes less time, is simpler and has lower chances of complications, and is now being preferred by many surgeons.
