Bariatric surgery in Hyderabad
What is Advanced Bariatric surgery?
Bariatric surgery is a type of weight loss surgery that is designed to help people who are severely overweight or obese to lose weight. The surgery is typically performed on individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35 or higher with related health problems such as diabetes or sleep apnea.
The most common types of bariatric surgery include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric banding, and biliopancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch. These procedures work by reducing the size of the stomach, limiting the amount of food that can be consumed, or altering the path of food through the digestive system.
Types of Bariatric Surgeries
There are several types of bariatric surgeries, including:
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass:
This is one of the most common types of bariatric surgery. It involves creating a small stomach pouch and connecting it to the small intestine, bypassing a large portion of the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine.
Sleeve gastrectomy, also known as gastric sleeve surgery, is a surgical procedure that helps individuals with obesity achieve weight loss and improve their overall health. It involves reducing the size of the stomach by surgically removing a large portion of it, leaving behind a smaller, sleeve-shaped stomach.
Adjustable Gastric Banding:
This surgery involves placing a band around the stomach to create a smaller stomach pouch. The band can be adjusted to control the size of the pouch.
Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch (BPD-DS)
This surgery involves removing a large portion of the stomach and connecting the remaining portion to the small intestine. The duodenum (the first part of the small intestine) is also bypassed.
The intragastric balloon, also known as the gastric balloon or stomach balloon, is a non-surgical procedure designed to aid in weight loss for individuals struggling with obesity. It involves placing a deflated balloon inside the stomach, which is then filled with saline solution to partially fill the stomach and create a feeling of fullness.
Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty
This is a non-surgical, endoscopic procedure that involves placing a suture-delivery device through the mouth and into the stomach to create a smaller stomach.
