Gastric Balloon

The intragastric balloon procedure is a non-surgical weight loss option that involves placing a silicone balloon in the stomach through an endoscopy. The balloon is then filled with saline or air, which helps to create a feeling of fullness and reduce the amount of food that can be eaten. The balloon is removed after 6 to 8 months.

Gastric Sleeve

The sleeve gastrectomy procedure is a bariatric surgery that involves removing a large portion of the stomach. The stomach is reduced to a narrow tube, or sleeve, which is about the size of a banana. This reduces the amount of food that the stomach can hold, which helps to promote weight loss, This procedure is the most frequently performed in Colombia.

Gastric Bypass

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is a bariatric surgery that involves creating a small pouch out of the upper part of the stomach. The pouch is then connected to the small intestine, bypassing the rest of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine. This reduces the amount of food that the stomach can hold and the amount of calories that the body can absorb.
