Obesity surgeons in India

Weight loss surgery is a life-altering decision — one of the most important decisions a person will ever make. Obesity is a serious disease process, in which the accumulation of fatty tissue on the body becomes excessive, and interferes with, or injures the other body organs, causing serious and life-threatening health problems, which are called co-morbidities. Obesity surgery requires a well experienced surgeon to treat and of course recent developed technology all this are essential to have successful treatment of obesity. Obesity surgery is done in many developed countries but the country which has treated maximum number of obesity patients is India.

There are several weight loss surgeries available today such as gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass. Gastric Banding: The surgery involves forming a small pouch in the upper part of the stomach that effectively becomes a new baby stomach. The sialistic band is wraped around the upper portion of stomach all around to form a "baby stomach." The narrow opening or stoma is formed by the bands two ends joining together. This band has a balloon on it which can be inflated or deflated in later stages so as to increase or decrease the size of stoma. This can be done anytime after the operation with the help of port kept under the skin at the time of operation, now the food still goes down the normal way and is digested in the bowel normally. The big difference is that the pouch will only allow a very small amount to be fitted in at one time and when this happens satisfaction is achieved and hunger will subside until the pouch eventually empties into the duodenum. Gastric Bypass: Gastric pouch 30 ml. Part of small intestine is bypassed. Greater weight loss. Hospital stays 5-7 days Vitamin mineral supplementation required. In this procedure a small stomach pouch is created by stapling the stomach. This causes restriction of the food intake. Next a “Y” shaped section of the small intestine is attached to the pouch to allow food to by-pass the first part of small intestine. This causes reduced calorie and nutrient absorption. Sleeve Gastrectomy: With this procedure, the surgeon removes approximately 60 per cent of the stomach laparoscopic ally so that the stomach takes the shape of a tube or "Sleeve". Technically most of these procedures are reversible but it is not advisable to contemplate reversal as person can regain the loss weight. Band slippage incidence has reduced with the modified band placement technique, improved band design and standardization of band adjustment protocol. Bariatric surgery continues to benefit people struggling with morbid obesity, most importantly it saves lives.
