Individuals seeking bariatric surgery are often confused about the subtle and nuanced differences between bariatric surgeries. To help educate, bariatric surgery has come up with a simplistic brief guide on the differences between Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve and Gastric Banding.
Gastric Bypass, or RNY gastric bypass surgery, is considered the standard in bariatric surgery. Typically reserved to treat morbidly obese individuals, gastric bypass has the highest expected weight-loss of all the bariatric surgeries.Yet, it doesn’t come without its complex nature. Gastric bypass involves permanent changes to a persons digestive tract and more, that’s why we’ve created these new guides.
Gastric Sleeve, or vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a newer surgery that many individuals are interested in - and with good reason. The expected weight-loss is high, and its reported risks and complications are low - but there is a downside. This permanent procedure is too new for any long-term studies. The results of 10 or even 15 years after surgery is unknown.
Gastric Banding, or adjustable gastric banding surgery, is a standard and very popular surgery type. This is the least invasive surgery type with the least amount of risks, complications and side effects, but gastric banding requires the most effort on patients for weight loss. Exercise, strict dieting, and motivation are needed to help patients keep the weight off.
All of these three very common surgeries are different, as is why we’ve created these guides to help.
