Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is a surgical procedure that helps people who are severely overweight or obese to lose weight by restricting the amount of food that the stomach can hold. There are several types of weight loss surgery, including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and adjustable gastric banding.

Who is the Right Candidate for Weight Loss Surgery?

The right candidate for weight loss surgery is someone who has a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35 or higher with one or more obesity-related health conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or sleep apnea. A good candidate for weight loss surgery should also have tried to lose weight through diet and exercise without success, and be committed to making lifestyle changes to maintain weight loss after surgery.

Procedure for Weight Loss Surgery

During weight loss surgery, the surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen and modifies the stomach to restrict the amount of food that can be consumed. The type of surgery performed will depend on the individual's needs and goals. The procedure can take several hours, depending on the type of surgery and the complexity of the issues being addressed.

Gastric Bypass

Stomach is cut and made into a small pouch. Small intestine is cutand brought up to be attached to the small pouch and the other end is reconnected. This small pouch restricts the food intake and also the food reaches the small intestine directly leading to malabsorption.

Gastric Sleeve

In sleeve gastrectomy, we restrict the amount of food intake by removing two third part of the stomach, which as a result prevents patients from overeating.

Mini Gastric Bypass or one Anastomosis Gastric Bypass

The stomach is cut and made into pouch and the intestine is brought up and attached to the stomach pouch without dividing it, leading to malabsorption.

Gastric Balloon

It is an inflatable medical device that is temporarily placed into the stomach to reduce weight.
