  • Gastric Bypass: malabsorptive procedure that constructs a pathway from the stomach to the small intestine to avoid nutrient and caloric absorption.
  • Adjustable Gastric Band: also known as LAP-BAND®, the procedure involves placing an adjustable band around the top part of the stomach to create a small pouch for food.
  • Bariatric Revision Surgery: a revision procedure may take place if the initial surgery was not a success or an alternative procedure is optimal.
