In brief: Operations

In terms of ultimate weight loss, the bypass would be #1 followed closely by sleeve.
The band would be a distant third. For fixing problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, the ranking is the same. Sleeves are a good option for someone without diabetes or heartburn. For a sleeve, we remove 80-85% of your stomach, so that your stomach ends up being a tube.
