Bariatric Surgery


Bariatric Obesity is a type of obesity that affects people who are overweight or obese for patients suffering from severe obesity, weight loss surgery is an excellent treatment option. It also improves obesity-related co-morbid problems such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and joint pains, as well as sleeping disorders such as sleep apnea, heart disease, and infertility issues.


Gastric Bypass Surgery

It’s one of the most popular and effective weight-loss methods. The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) is the “Gold Standard” of weight-loss surgery. A tiny gastric pouch is formed during this treatment to limit food intake and facilitate smaller meals. A large amount of the stomach and a portion of the small intestine are bypassed, reducing food absorption and calorie intake.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery/Sleeve gastrectomy

This procedure involves removing 80 percent of the stomach. The leftover stomach is referred to known as “Sleeve” because it resembles a banana or a shirt sleeve. Weight loss occurs as a result of the new stomach pouch, which limits the amount of food consumed. Because a large piece of the stomach is removed from the body, this treatment is not reversible, and the residual stomach pouch can widen with overeating in the long run.
