Gastric bypass

Gastric Bypass consists of dividing the stomach in such a way that food passes from the esophagus into a very small fragment of the upper part of the stomach, called the gastric reservoir. Subsequently, a bridge is created from the small intestine to the new stomach, so that fewer calories will be assimilated, favoring weight loss.

Gastric sleeve

The Gastric Sleeve consists of converting the stomach into a tube or sleeve similar to the esophagus or the intestine, modifying its capacity and the production of hormones responsible for regulating appetite and satiety.
