Types of Bariatric Surgery Procedures

Bariatric surgery is a general term to describe various surgical techniques used to treat obesity. Weight loss results are accomplished through a modification of the gastrointestinal tract which leads to reduced fat and sugar intake and absorption. These weight loss procedures involve the use of a laparoscope and are generally considered minimally invasive. Not included in this category are procedures such as liposuction which involve the surgical removal of body fat.

For individuals who have not had success with weight loss through diet and exercise programs, the investigation of one of these types of bariatric surgery is an option. Consult with one of our specialists to see if you are a candidate.

Todas aquellas personas que no han tenido éxito en su lucha contra la obesidad mediante dietas y programas de ejercicios, pueden obtener a través de los diferentes procedimientos de cirugía Bariátrica, una opción óptima para lograr su meta de pérdida de peso.
Consulte con nuestros especialistas y compruebe si usted es candidato a la cirugía Bariátrica.


Types of Bariatric Surgery Procedures:
There are two categories of bariatric surgery procedures: Restrictive Procedures and Combined Restrictive and Mal Absorptive Procedures. To learn more about each of the types of bariatric surgery, click on the link below.


Restrictive Procedures: Purpose is to reduce the individual's food consumption.

Combined Restrictive and Mal Absorptive Procedures: Objective is to both minimize consumption and to alter the individual's dietary routine.

The Contemporary Standard: Gastric Bypass
Given the volume of gastric bypass procedures performed in the United States and worldwide compared to all of the other types of bariatric surgery, gastric bypass is considered the contemporary standard for weight loss surgery. In addition, the scientific evidence of the effectiveness of gastric bypass further positions this operation as a premier choice for obese patients. Furthermore, compared to the lap-band procedure which requires occasional adjustments, a gastric bypass operation is better suited to medical tourism.
