Gastric Banding

Gastric banding, also known by its trade names Lap Band and Realize Band, is the least invasive form of bariatric surgery. The gastric band is essentially an inflatable tube that is fully adjustable and reversible. Its safety as a bariatric procedure is unparalleled because it does not require the alteration of the stomach pouch or the rerouting of the small intestine in order to function.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass is incredibly effective because it combines restriction – by creating a smaller stomach pouch – with malabsorption of calories – by rerouting and bypassing part of the small intestine.
