Vertical gastrectomy / sleeve gastrectomy

The Vertical Gastrectomy is also known as the Sleeve Gastrectomy, Restrictive Vertical Gastroplasty, or Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy. The Vertical Gastretomy is essentially a newer, better version of the vertical banded gastroplasty, a procedure that has been abandoned by virtually all weight loss surgeons, due to high failure rates and complications.

LAP-BAND® System, adjustable gastric band

The LAP-BAND adjustable band is placed laparoscopically around the upper part of the stomach.  The silicone band divides the stomach into a small pouch above the band and larger pouch below the band.  The smaller pouch limits the amount of food the patient can eat with the result of fullness after eating a small amount of food.  The band is connected by a tube to a port that is placed underneath the skin and fat of the abdominal wall on top of the muscle.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass

Most common weight loss surgery performed in the U.S. and considered the gold standard of weight loss surgery.  Dr. Feng creates a small, upper stomach pouch about 1 ounce in size, dividing it from the lower stomach. This significantly restricts the volume of food that can be eaten. He then divides the small intestine to create a Y-shaped section to attach to the stomach pouch.
