Sleeve Gastrectomy to Gastric Bypass

Sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass are both surgical procedures that can help individuals with obesity lose weight. However, there are some differences between these two procedures.

Sleeve gastrectomy involves removing a large portion of the stomach, leaving a smaller “sleeve” or tube-shaped stomach. This reduces the amount of food that can be eaten at one time, and also affects the production of certain hormones that control hunger and satiety.

Gastric bypass, on the other hand, involves creating a small stomach pouch and then rerouting the small intestine to connect to this pouch. This reduces the amount of food that can be eaten and also reduces the amount of nutrients that are absorbed by the body.

In some cases, individuals who have had a sleeve gastrectomy may not achieve their desired weight loss goals or may experience complications such as acid reflux or weight regain. In these cases, converting to a gastric bypass may be recommended.

Converting from a sleeve gastrectomy to a gastric bypass typically involves creating a small stomach pouch and rerouting the small intestine to connect to this pouch, similar to the initial gastric bypass procedure. This revision surgery may provide additional weight loss or address complications that were not resolved by the sleeve gastrectomy.

However, it is important to note that any surgical procedure involves risks and potential complications, and the decision to undergo a revision surgery should be made in consultation with a qualified bariatric surgeon.
