Types Of Bariatric Surgery
This is an advanced type of laparoscopic surgery in which the entire surgery is carried out through a single entry point the “belly button”. Since the incision is made inside the umbilicus, it results in a scarless surgery.
Having the desired skills and being the finest surgical team in Asia to perform this highly challenging technique has earned us the reputation of being – ‘The SILS Experts’.
In this procedure the outer margin of the stomach is removed to limit the amount of food intake, leaving a sleeve of stomach roughly about the size and shape of a banana. The sleeve gastrectomy, allows the patient to feel full after eating less and taking in fewer calories. The surgery removes that portion of the stomach that produces a hormone that can makes a patient feel hungry. Food passes through the digestive tract in the usual order, allowing vitamins and nutrients to be fully absorbed into the body. In this procedure a person can lose upto 80% of their excess body weight and also helps to resolve high BP, obstructive sleep apnoea and type2 Diabetes in patients.
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
Gastric bypass, also called Roux-en-Y (roo-en-y) gastric bypass, is a type of weight-loss surgery that involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine. After gastric bypass, swallowed food will go into this small pouch of stomach and then directly into the small intestine, thereby bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine. The gastric bypass is considered the most reliable operation for long-lasting weight loss because of its multiple mechanisms. It limits the amount of food that can be eaten at a meal and reduces the desire to eat. Moreover, weight loss is higher than any other weight loss surgery.
Single Anastomosis Duodenal Switch
This procedure is very similar to the standard duodenal switch operation, except that the small intestine is transacted only at one point instead of two. The majority of the most stretchable portion of the stomach is permanently removed, but basic stomach function remains the same. In addition, roughly 4/5th of the upper small intestine is bypassed, resulting in a moderate decrease in calorie absorption. Weight loss is achieved both through restriction of food consumption and malabsorption.
Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding Surgery
It is a minimally invasive, quick, reversible and adjustable surgical procedure that decreases the size of the stomach to reduce food intake. It involves placing an inflatable band around the top of the stomach, which results in a person feels fuller with less food. The surgeon places a band around the upper part of your stomach to create a small pouch to hold food. The band limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after eating small amounts of food.
A gastric balloon is a non-surgical tool to help achieve weight loss. In this procedure, a silicon balloon is inserted into the stomach that creates a feeling of fullness quicker after smaller meals. It reduces your hunger allowing you to control your portion sizes and can be used as a stepping stone on the path to weight loss success. This procedure accompanied by customized diet and adequate physical activity you can weight quickly and keep the weight off long term.
