Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y)

Gastric bypass, also called Roux-en-Y (roo-en-wy) gastric bypass, involves dividing the stomach to create a small pouch (called the proximal pouch) at the top, and rerouting the small intestine so that it connects to the pouch instead of the larger stomach. This surgery usually takes two to three hours, and most patients stay in the hospital for one to two days.

Sleeve gastrectomy

In sleeve gastrectomy, about 75% of the stomach is removed, leaving only a narrow tube, or sleeve, of stomach. No intestines are removed or bypassed. This surgery takes about one to two hours to complete and requires an overnight stay in the hospital.
