A rendering of a Roux-en-Y 胃旁路手术 (RNY)胃旁路手术

Roux-en-Y胃旁路术 forms a small stomach pouch and attaches it directly to the small intestine, bypassing most of the stomach and a lot of the small intestine. Expect to lose 60–80 percent of excess weight if you make required lifestyle changes after this surgery. About 80 percent of patients with Type 2 糖尿病 see their symptoms disappear with this procedure.

胃套手术 removes about 80 percent of the stomach. Look forward to losing 50–60 percent of excess weight if you make required lifestyle changes after this surgery. About 60 percent of patients with Type 2 糖尿病 see their symptoms disappear after this treatment.

Creates a small stomach “sleeve,” where 60% of the stomach is removed and ½ of the upper GI tract is bypassed, which decreases the amount of calories absorbed from food. Expect to lose 60-70% of excess weight if you make required lifestyle changes after this surgery. About 70 percent of patients with Type 2 糖尿病 see a decrease in medication requirements.
