Bariatric Surgery: Obesity, or being extremely overweight, increases the risk of health concerns including heart disease and stroke, hypertension, diabetes, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, gout, breathing problems such as sleep apnea and asthma, and even cancer. It is no surprise that doctors advise patients to lose weight. However, losing copious amounts of weight is never easy, and sometimes diets, exercise, medications, and lifestyle changes fail to deliver the desired results.

This is where bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery comes into the picture. These weight-loss surgeries work in one of two ways: they either reduce the size of the stomach (restrictive) or reduce the number of calories absorbed (malabsorptive).

Most common of them, the gastric bypass surgery is done to help lose excess weight and reduce the risk of potentially life-threatening weight-related health problems, including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Type 2 diabetes and stroke.

At Ramesh Hospitals, patients can avail all types of bariatric surgery procedures and later body contouring if needed.

Stomach stapling decreases the size of the stomach so a person feels full quickly. Whereas a normal stomach holds four to six cups of food, stomach stapling reduces this capacity to one cup. The gastric sleeve surgery reduces the size of the stomach by about 80 percent. The gastric balloon procedure (endoscopic intragastric balloon) leaves an inflated silicon balloon in the stomach for six months, making less room for food. As a result, patients lose up to 30 percent of their excess weight in these six months. Malabsorptive procedures like gastric bypass involve creating a diversion that allows food to bypass parts of the small intestine, leading to fewer calories being absorbed. So even if patients eat he can still lose weight.

All of these bariatric surgeries can be performed through minimally invasive laparoscopic technique. Ramesh Hospitals has a team of dedicated doctors who work across the specialties, bringing years of expertise in their field, as well as inpatient care. These professionals put their patients’ well-being first; these patients are required to undergo extensive screening to determine whether they meet certain medical criteria to undergo bariatric surgery.
