The distal parts of the small intestines are attached to the pouch bypassing both jejunum as well as the duodenum. Finally, we briefly explain here two additional weight loss surgery options; adjustable gastric band and vertical banded gastoplasty procedures.
To begin with the latter, vertical banded involves complete stapling of the stomach so as to create a smaller pouch. Also called stomach stapling or the mason procedure, vertical banded surgery continues to prove to be a highly customizable procedure with excellent long term benefits.
As for the adjustable gastric band, a silicon band is used to create a restriction of the stomach. And anytime, it can be adjusted by the removal or addition of saline through a pot that is placed under the skin. Much to its credit, this procedure is considered by many patients to be the the most convenient.
