From state-of-the-art operating rooms with the latest integrated laparoscopic system and special instruments are used to aid in safe surgery. Read about the investigations that are critical in providing treatment to the patients. Requirements will change depending on individual patient's obesity & co-morbidity status.
Laproscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is safer than other procedures.
- In this procedure, 80% of the stomach is stapled and removed which induces weight loss by restriction in food intake and early satiety, due to loss of hunger producing hormones.
- Digestion and absorption is normal.
- By eating less the body draws the required energy from its own fat stores and thus you lose weight.
The R OUX-EN-Y Gastric Bypass
- In this procedure, a small, 15 to 20 cc, pouch is created at the top of the stomach.
- The small bowel is divided. The bilio-pancreatic limb is reattached to the small bowel and the other end is connected to the pouch, creating the Roux limb.
- The small pouch releases food slowly, causing a sensation of fullness with very little food intake.
- The bilio-pancreatic limb preserves the action of the digestive tract.
Laparoscopic Minigastric bypass
- This is a procedure which is a combination of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic ROUX-EN-Y gastric by pass.
- This procedure is first catching up as number of one procedure around the world.
- Laparoscopic Gastric Bandage
- Laparoscopic Bilateral – pancreatic by pass with duodenal stitch. The procedures are undertaken only selectively now.
