Gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y)

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), commonly called simply 'gastric bypass', is one of the most popularly performed bariatric procedures worldwide and has long been considered the 'gold standard' of bariatric surgery. The gastric bypass was first reported in 1967 and was performed as open surgery for several decades. However today, it is performed by the laparoscopic (keyhole) approach, and recently the team has started performing this surgery by using a robot.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG), was first conceived of a planned two staged procedure. Over recent times the LSG has become one of the most popular bariatric operations world wide.

Gastric Banding

The adjustable gastric band is made of soft silicone and is equipped with a firmly attached inflatable balloon. This balloon is connected by a tube to an access port. The band is positioned around the upper part of the stomach by keyhole (or laparoscopic) surgery so as to create a small pouch. This small pouch lies above the band and has a capacity of 15-20mL. The remaining stomach lies below the band.
