Bariatric surgery options for you.
Roux-en-Y laparoscopic gastric bypass — a procedure that alters the process of digestion so you feel fuller faster. The surgery is performed through small abdominal incisions, which results in less pain and a quicker recovery.
Lap-Band procedure — creates a smaller stomach pouch that can hold only a small amount of food. Patients feel full faster and longer as the food moves more slowly through the digestive tract.
Vertical sleeve gastrectomy — restricts stomach volume and the amount of food intake by removing 85 percent or more of the stomach without bypassing the intestines or preventing the body from fully absorbing nutrients from the gastrointestinal tract.
