Basis of obesity surgery: How obesity surgery works

  1. Restrictive procedures that decrease food intake eg -Gastric Banding, Sleeve Gastrectomy
  2. Malabsorptive procedures that alter digestion, thus causing the food to be poorly digested and incompletely absorbed so that it is eliminated in the stool eg - Biliopancreatic diversion Additionally, combination operations take advantage of both restriction and malabsorption, eg –Gastric Bypass
