Types of Bariatric Surgeries
Patients who decide to have bariatric surgery have access to four procedures, some including minimally invasive options and robotic-assisted procedures. That means less pain and scarring, less risk of infection, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays. Your bariatric surgeon will know which procedure is right for you.
The “Weight Loss Surgery and You” guide explains the differences between the following surgical procedures:
- Gastric Bypass Surgery
- Gastric Sleeve Conversion
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
