Choice of Surgical Procedure depends upon:
Sleeve Gastrectomy: Around 80% part of the stomach is laparoscopically removed leaving behind a banana or sleeve-shaped stomach, reducing the intake capacity of the stomach from 1.5 liters to 80-100 ml. This surgery also alters the hunger hormones (ghrelin) that suppress one’s hunger & help to achieve satiety soon.
Gastric Banding: In this surgery, the surgeon places a band around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch to hold food. It is an obsolete procedure and we no more practice it.
GastricBypass: Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is the most common gastric bypass surgery. In this surgery, the surgeon makes a small stomach pouch by stapling part of the stomach. This limits how much food you can eat.
Next, the surgeon attaches a Y-shaped section of the small intestine to the pouch. That creates a bypass for food, so it skips part of your digestive system. As a result, you absorb fewer calories and nutrients. It produces desirable changes in gut hormones & improves Metabolism & Diabetic status.
Mini Gastric Bypass: In recent years, a surgical technique known as a single-anastomosis gastric bypass (SAGB) or mini-gastric bypass (MGB) has been developed; its frequency of performance has increased considerably in the current decade. This procedure proposes a simplification of Roux-en-Y bypass by performing a single anastomosis, with a significant reduction of technical complexity shorter operative time, and a potential reduction in morbidity and mortality. Several studies have demonstrated the benefits provided by this procedure, including excess weight loss and resolution of comorbidities equivalent or even higher than those observed after the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.Make an Appointment
