Types of Bariatric Surgeries

Gastric Banding

Gastric banding surgery is a popular restrictive bariatric surgery and is one of the least invasive surgery for weight loss. The procedure involves placing a specially designed band/implant, around the upper portion of the stomach. It effectively creates a stomach with two connected compartments, with a smaller upper portion and larger bottom portion. A person eats enough food only to fill the top part of the stomach. After the surgery, the food passes slowly through the smaller upper portion into the remainder of the stomach during digestion.


Gastric sleeve surgery or sleeve gastrectomy is performed to reshape the stomach into a long pouch or sleeve resembling a banana. The remaining part of the stomach is completely removed leaving 15% of the stomach to process food. Removed part of the stomach is responsible for generating the hormone “Ghrelin” which makes you feel hungry. With it gone your appetite will decrease significantly helping your weight loss process.


Gastric Bypass surgery is a combination of restrictive & mal-absorptive procedures that reduces the stomach to the size of a small pouch. Regarded as a “Gold Standard” among bariatric surgeries, gastric bypass is performed since 50 years by various techniques. It gives proven reliable weight loss with minimal side effects. Our team at Obesithyd has unparalleled experience in performing Gastric Bypass surgery.


Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery is a weight loss procedure that is performed that is short, simple, successful and inexpensive technique. The mini gastric bypass surgery involves reduction of the size of the stomach.

Mini Bypass has been suggested as an alternative to the Roux-en-Y procedure, because of the relative simplicity of the surgery, minimal complications & faster recovery. It is a worthy long-term weight loss procedure with least invasiveness and shorter stay at the hospital.


For the great many of bariatric surgery patients, a single weight loss procedure delivers the substantial & sustainable weight loss without complications. However, for some, a single procedure may not provide the desired outcomes. A bariatric surgery patient may experience inadequate weight loss and in some rare cases medical complications from the surgery.

Our team offers revision bariatric surgery to modify previous weight loss surgeries. The benefits of revisional bariatric surgery can be remarkable.
