In brief: Depends
Bypass is ideal for patients with severe gastric reflux or severe obesity or bad diabetes.
Sleeve is great for moderate diabetes and mild reflux. Band is ok for thinner patients ( bmi < 40) who have minimal reflux, no diabetes, and good eating habits. Duodenal switch still too much malabsorption.
