Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is one of the demanding surgeries for obesity & metabolic surgery in the country. This surgery helps you lose weight by making changes to your digestive system. Some types of bariatric surgeries make your stomach smaller, allowing you to eat and drink less at one time and making you feel full sooner.

Most weight loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery). It also includes revision surgeries with good success rates.

Bariatric Surgery includes different types of weight loss surgeries like:

  • Laparoscopic Gastric Banding
  • Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass
  • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass

Specialized Treatments

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

In a sleeve gastrectomy, also known as a vertical sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve procedure, the outer margin of the stomach is removed to restrict food intake, leaving a sleeve of stomach, roughly the size and shape of a banana, and the pylorus, the muscle that controls emptying of food from the stomach into the intestine. A sleeve gastrectomy is a purely restrictive procedure.

The sleeve gastrectomy, by reducing the size of the stomach, 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.

Sleeve gastrectomy is a simpler operation than the gastric bypass procedure because it does not involve rerouting of or reconnection of the intestines. The sleeve gastrectomy, unlike the Lap-band, does not require the use of a banding device to be implanted around a portion of the stomach.

Advantages

  • Weight loss generally is generally faster with the sleeve than with the gastric band
  • Less food intolerance than with the gastric band
  • No implantable band device
  • Surgical risk is lower than with gastric bypass while weight loss is similar

Roux—En-Y Gastric Bypass

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is a type of weight-loss surgery. ... It's often done as a laparoscopic surgery, with small incisions in the abdomen. This surgery reduces the size of your upper stomach to a small pouch about the size of an egg. The surgeon does this by stapling off the upper section of the stomach.

Advantages of Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

  • The average excess weight loss after the Roux-en-Y procedure is generally higher in a compliant patient than with purely restrictive procedures.
  • One year after surgery, weight loss can average 77 percent of excess body weight.
  • Studies show that after 10 to 14 years, 50-60 percent of excess body weight loss has been maintained by some patients.
  • A 2000 study of 500 patients showed that 96 percent of certain associated health conditions studied (back pain, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, diabetes and depression) were improved or resolved.

Mini Gastric Bypass

(MGB) is an emerging procedure offering excellent results in terms of weight loss and comorbidities (mainly metabolic) control.

Advantages of Mini Gastric Bypass

  • Shorter time in the operating room
  • Less intestines are bypassed
  • Less connections of the intestines which aids in fewer complications
  • Procedure is less work for the trained surgeon
  • Close to the same amount of weight loss
  • Close to the same amount of recovery time

Gastric Banding

Laparoscopic gastric banding is surgery to help with weight loss. 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.

Advantages of Gastric banding:

  • Gastric band surgery is a type of weight loss, or bariatric, 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.
  • After surgery, it is necessary to follow a strict liquids-only diet with gradual reintroduction of soft foods for up to 6 weeks.
  • Banding can result in significant weight loss and improve diabetes, but weight loss varies greatly.
