In this technique, the stomach is sectioned to reduce its size and the small intestine is sutured to the small stomach created. This reduces the amount of food ingested and its absorption.
After the intervention, the average weight lost is usually around 70% of the excess weight and 30% of the total weight.
Laparoscopic tubular gastrectomy
