Sleeve gastrectomy also referred to as vertical sleeve, gastric sleeve or tube gastrectomy is a surgical procedure performed for the treatment of obesity.
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), commonly called simply "gastric bypass", is one of the most popularly performed bariatric procedures worldwide and has long been considered the "gold standard" of bariatric surgery.
Mini Gastric Bypass
The One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass (OAGB), also known as "mini-gastric bypass" was first reported in 2001. The OAGB is a minimally invasive procedure performed with laparoscopic technique.
In this procedure, a hollow band made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger remainder of the stomach.
Intragastric Balloon (Orbera)
Gastric balloon, also called endoscopic intragastric balloon, is a non-surgical weight-loss procedure which involves the insertion of a specialized balloon inside the stomach to occupy space and limit the food carrying capacity of the stomach.
