- Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (LAGB)
Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (LAGB) is purely restrictive weight loss surgery. Restrictive forms of weight loss surgery such as LAGB promote weight loss by limiting food intake and promoting a feeling of satiety (fullness) after meals. During LABG surgery, a silicone (gastric) band is placed around the upper stomach through keyhole laparoscopic surgery.
- Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Resection (LGSR)
LGSR is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 20-30% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the major curve of stomach. The remaining stomach looks like a tube often called as stomach tube. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach. The patient feels full after a small intake of food.
- Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)
In gastric bypass the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger, lower pouch. This new stomach area is then connected to small intestine. The rest of the stomach is left in place and continues to remain healthy. This will reduce the amount of food taken and thus the calories consumed. Bypassing part of the intestine also results in fewer calories being absorbed. This leads to weight loss.
Surgeries are performed laparoscopically (key hole) resulting in no scars, less pain and short hospital stay. Bariatric surgery is the only reliable and sustainable weight reduction method which is proven beyond doubt in its safety and efficacy.
