Gastric bypass – one of the most commonly performed procedures in bariatric surgery. Many surgeons prefer this rather than the other types of operations, because it can lead to fewer complications and is considered the safest operation.

Mini Gastric bypass is the younger brother of gastric bypass surgery and originated in 1997, reducing the level of complications. It is a quick and easy procedure, which is gaining popularity all over the world.

Gastric Sleeve – this operation means that the stomach is converted into a “narrow tube”, and it takes away about 75% of the stomach. The volume of the stomach is greatly reduced, therefore ability to produce ghrelin, the hormone that makes you hungry, is taken away. The assumption is that this helps to reduce weight.
