    Sleeve Gastrectomy

    The gastric sleeve has become a popular option, since it doesn’t involve bypassing of the small intestine and has a low rate of long-term complications. It is also still fairly effective at improving or potentially resolving type 2 diabetes for many patients.

    Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass

    You can expect significant weight loss from the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, which is designed to make your stomach much smaller. By enabling food to bypass much of the stomach and part of the small intestine, you’ll find yourself getting full more quickly, with less desire to eat, helping you keep the weight off for years to come.
