Obesity is a serious disease affecting people all over the world. It is associated with cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidaemia and arthritis that can be improved with sufficient weight loss. Diet and weight loss programs have not provided successful weight loss or long term results. If you’ve been thinking about weight loss surgery as a tool of losing weight and maintaining your ongoing health goals, the options are now available here.
This is a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical aid in the treatment of obesity. A soft silicone gastric balloon is inserted into the stomach. When you eat, this balloon reduces the amount of food the stomach can hold and causes you to fill full faster. The balloon can be left in the stomach for up to 6 months. You only need a BMI of 27 or above to undergo the gastric balloon procedure. As a result, it is a weight loss option for lighter individuals who may not be candidates for other forms of surgery.
This procedure is a simple yet advanced system that helps you gradually lose and control your weight by reducing the amount of food that your stomach can hold at one time. It is a minimally invasive surgical technique. The gastric band will be locked around the stomach.This procedure usually results in a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, smaller scars, and less pain than open surgical procedures.
Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is permanently reduced by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach. It is suitable for most morbidly obese, high-risk and smaller-sized patients.
Gastric bypass procedure is a procedure where your stomach is stapled to create a small pouch and a passage for food to go bypass a section of your small intestine. It is indicated for the surgical treatment of morbid obesity, generally used for people who have a body mass index greater than 50. Patient who is suffering from co-morbid conditions which are either life-threatening or a serious impairment to the quality of life also is indicated for this treatment.
