Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
Better known simply as a gastric bypass, a Roux-en-Y procedure entails creating a smaller pouch out of the stomach that can be attached to the small intestine. This reduces the size of the stomach and shortens the digestive tract, limiting appetite and stomach capacity.
Adjustable Gastric Band
Gastric banding requires the use of an adjustable gastric band that is placed around the top of the stomach. This lessens the available space within the stomach, reducing the amount of food that can be consumed and slowing the digestive process.
