Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: This is a type of gastric bypass surgery where the stomach is reduced in capacity and is the most common method of gastric bypass. It works with two methods.

  1. It decreases the amount of food you can eat at one sitting
  2. It also reduces the absorption of nutrients.

What is RYGB?

The surgeon cuts across the upper part of your stomach, converting it to a small pouch. Then the small intestine is cut and it is sewn to the stomach pouch. Food then goes into this small pouch of the stomach and then directly into the small intestine thus it bypasses most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine, and instead enters directly into the middle part of your small intestine.

Sleeve Gastrectomy: Sleeve gastrectomy. A sleeve gastrectomy is removing a portion of the stomach without any bypass. Thus it reduces the amount food u can take at a time. It is very commonly performed surgery esp when there is moderate obesity.
