Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).

 

General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents including esophagusstomach, small bowel, colonliverpancreasgallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland (depending on the availability of head and neck surgery specialists). It also deals with diseases involving the skinbreastsoft tissue, and hernias.
