How do we perform it or how it works?
Operation for weight is done laparoscopically just like any other surgery. In this the surgeon tailors/reduces the size of the stomach to 1/10th of the normal size stomach by using a band or a stapling device to reduce the intake of food one can consume and achieve satiety earlier. There are a variety of bariatric or weight loss procedures and each procedure has got its own advantages. There is no “one size fits all” procedure and proper evaluation and counseling of the patient determines which one best fits his weight loss goals. Bariatric procedures can be restrictive in which one feels full sooner while eating or malabsorptive in which less calories are absorbed by body or a combination of both. The different types of weight loss procedures are:
- Laparoscopic Sleeve gastrectomy
- Laparoscopic gastric banding bypass
- Laparoscopic Mini gastric bypass
- Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
- Laparoscopic Biliopancreatic diversion
- Laparoscopic Duodenal switch
- Laparoscopic Single Anastomosis duodenal switch
The most commonly performed and popular in India amongst all of the above -procedures are Sleeve Gastrectomy and gastric bypass. The first if the restrictive type whereas the second one is a combination of both restrictive and malabsorptive. It is been observed that after weight loss surgery our patients lose 65-80% of their excess weight in a year and also their co-morbid conditions like type 2 Diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnoea, joint and back pains, etc. have also been totally cured or improved. Studies have also proved that the surgery also helps to reduce the mortality rate by 40%.
