Kinds Of Surgeries Conducted  

Restrictive Surgery: This aims to reduce the capacity of the stomach to about 60 ml - thus ensuring early satiety in the patient and reduced food intake. The capacity can be reduced by using a silastic band that goes around the upper part of the stomach and constricts it. It may also be done by applying staplers that compartmentalize the stomach with a small capacity upper part and a larger de-functioned lower part. 

Gastric Bypass: Bypasses cause reduced absorption by diverting food away from parts of the small intestine that is responsible for absorption of food. The typical gastric bypass done today combines the reduction of capacity of the stomach and the bypass of the upper small intestine thus ensuring effective weight reduction.
