Bariatric/weight loss Surgery

Bariatric surgery is nothing but the common term collectively used for many types of weight-loss surgeries. These surgeries make changes to your digestive system to help you lose weight. They either limit the amount of food you can eat or reduce the ability to absorb nutrition and in some cases both.

Such types of surgeries are done when diet or exercise plans have failed and when the person has some health condition as a result of their weight.

The most commonly done bariatric surgery include

  • Sleeve gastrectomy
  • Roux en Y gastric bypass
  • Mini gastric bypass
