We have collaborations with excellent hospitals, having good relations with Harvard Medical & Johns Hopkins. We offer access to globally renowned doctors who have in their accounts more than 3000 lap band surgeries and gastric bypass surgeries. Here are some most commonly used procedures and all you need to know about them:
Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by limiting the amount of food reaching the stomach resulting in lesser calorie intake and ultimately reduction in body weight. This technique is applied when other weight loss methods have failed to give stipulated results.
These procedures not only help in the reduction of body weight but reduce the appetite of the person. Therefore the patient experiences fullness after eating lesser food.
These surgeries work in two ways:
By inhibiting the amount of food reaching the stomach by creating physical barriers.
Removing part of the stomach and shortening the path reach, causing malabsorption of nutrients by using minimally invasive techniques.
Sleeve Gastrectomy and Gastric Bypass (R N Y):
Sleeve Gastrectomy and Gastric Bypass both surgeries involve the minimally invasive technique of removing a portion of the stomach in the earlier case by cutting a small portion of the stomach and connecting it to the small intestine. Studies show that these two procedures have given long-term relief and 50% to 60% loss of weight; also giving a lot of advantages and recovery from other diseases namely diabetes, efficient cardiovascular conditions, and reduction in mortality from almost 40% to 23%.
Lap Band Surgery (LPBG):
Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band commonly known as a lap band, A-band, or LAGB is an inflatable silicone device placed around the top portion of the stomach to treat obesity, in order to reduce the calorie intake of the body.
Gastric banding is a laparoscopic surgical procedure which requires only a few keyholes to be made into the stomach resulting in lesser pain, few scars, faster recovery, and shorter stay at the hospital. It is completely a reversible process with a keyhole operation.
Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal switch (BPD/DS) Gastric Bypass:
The Biliopancreatic Diversion with duodenal abbreviated as - BPD/DS is a surgical procedure with two steps. Firstly a tubular section of the stomach is created by removing a significant portion of the stomach, which is a very similar sleeve gastrectomy. Next, a large portion of the small intestine is bypassed.
In this way, both food intake, as well as calorie and nutrient intake of the body are restricted resulting in a significant amount of weight loss.
Weight gain has always proven to be fatal and in almost all cases the emotional and psychological breakdown of an obese patient takes place.
