(click for worldwide facilities list): Bariatric surgery is a treatment option for people living with morbid obesity—especially for those who have not experienced long-term weight loss success through other means. Bariatric surgery has many benefits that can lead to a healthier, higher quality of life. It also has certain risks. Bariatric surgery is the clinical term for several different procedures. The procedures use one or both of two approaches to help patients lose weight and improve or resolve co-morbid conditions.
During these procedures, the surgeon creates a small stomach pouch, which limits the amount of food patients can eat. The smaller stomach pouch fills quickly, which helps patients feel satisfied with less food. Examples of restrictive bariatric procedures: Gastric banding, Sleeve gastrectomy.
During these procedures, the surgeon reroutes the small intestine so that food skips a portion of it. The small intestine absorbs calories and nutrients from food, and avoiding part of it means that some calories and nutrients are not absorbed. Surgeons rarely perform strictly malabsorptive procedures. Most procedures that use malabsorption also use restriction.
Certain procedures such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery uses a combination of restriction and malabsorption. Examples of combination bariatric procedures: Gastric bypass, and the Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.
