Bariatric Surgeons in India
Bariatric surgery is the surgical procedure on the stomach, and is generally suggested for overweight people to treat obesity. It helps them to reduce weight as well as prevent various health problems and hazards associated with obesity. Bariatric surgical procedures are only considered for people with severe obesity and not for individuals with a mild weight problems. Obesity is the single biggest threat to the health of our nation. Obesity is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, and is a recognized risk factor for cardiovascular disease, type diabetes, and cancer, degenerative diseases of the muscle-skeletal system, reproductive disorders and respiratory disorders. Bariatric surgery has beneficial effects on co-morbidities and long-term survival. Bariatric surgery (also called obesity or weight loss surgery) is currently the most effective method of treating obese patients who meet the criteria of above 40 BMI. Bariatric surgeons in India are well groomed for providing bariatric surgery. Many bariatric surgeons in India are educated from U.S.A and UK. Most of them are board certified surgeons.
Bariatric surgery being a major surgical procedure takes a few hours to perform and a few days for the patients to feel more or less fit. Bariatric surgery consists of adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. Gastric bypass surgery makes the stomach smaller and allows food to bypass part of the small intestine. You will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size, which reduces the amount of food, you eat and thus the calories consumed. Bypassing part of the intestine also results in fewer calories being absorbed. This leads to weight loss. The most common gastric bypass surgery is also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. In normal digestion, food passes through the stomach and enters the small intestine where most of the nutrients and calories are absorbed. It then passes into the large intestine and the remaining waste is eventually excreted. In a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the stomach is made smaller by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach using surgical staples or a plastic band. The smaller stomach is connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine (jejunum), bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine (duodenum).This procedure can be done by making a large incision in the abdomen (an open procedure) or by making a small incision and using small instruments and a camera to guide the surgery. Most people who have gastric bypass surgery quickly begin to lose weight and continue to lose weight for up to 12 months. One study noted that people lost about one-third of their excess weight (the weight above what is considered healthy) in 1 to 4 years.
