Minimally invasive gastric bypass offers the potential for better outcomes than traditional open approaches because it can result in shorter procedures times and may offer reduced risk for serious complications.

Scarring:

  • Traditional
    4-inch to 8-inch scar
  • Laproscopic 
    Four small three-quarter-inch scars

Minimally invasive gastric bypass offers numerous potential benefits over open abdominal surgery, including:

  • Significantly less pain 
  • Less blood loss 
  • Fewer complications

Gastric Banding

Gastric banding is performed by surgeons who make one or more small incisions in the abdomen through which small instruments are passed, allowing them to place a hollow band made of silicone rubber around the upper portion of the stomach.

The band creates a narrow passage and makes the stomach a small pouch.

The band can be inflated with a salt solution through an access port placed underneath the skin, and it can be adjusted over time to change the size of the passage and pouch. After gastric banding, patients feel full with smaller food portions.

Gastric Sleeve

The gastric-sleeve procedure involves removing approximately two-thirds of the left side of the stomach through small incisions made in the abdomen.

The result is a tube or sleeve-shaped stomach.

After undergoing a gastric-sleeve procedure, patients feel full with smaller food portions, and their feeling of hunger is greatly reduced, according to the National Institutes of Health.
