Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
Laparoscopic surgeries have gained ground to treat obesity. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is more commonly used method. The surgery refashions the stomach into a small pouch and by passes the small intestine. This surgical method has been effectively used but patients are always advised to study the risk factors before opting for Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. This surgery limits your intake of food and gives a feeling of fullness.
Lap-Band surgery
The Lap-Band or adjustable gastric banding surgery involves reduced risk than Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. Unlike the earlier bypassing the stomach, a balloon like band is stapled around the stomach to produce a smaller upper pouch. This makes the patient feel full after a small meal. Through a tiny hole in the stomach the balloon like device is inserted and inflated that limits the stomach's capacity. The patient according to his needs can adjust the band- tightening it or loosening it. A portal under the skin of the patient is used to adjust the amount of solution in it. This is an attractive alternative for most of the patients wishing to reduce weight through Laparoscopic operation.
