Bariatric surgery

SURGICAL PROCEDURES

  • ​Laparoscopic gastric band

  • Laparoscopic gastric band removal

  • Gastric plication surgery

  • Sleeve gastrectomy

  • Re-Sleeve gastrectomy for dilatation

  • Sleeve gastrectomy in patients with cirrhosis 

  • Mini gastric bypass/one anastomosis gastric bypass

  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass

  • Bariatric revision surgery

BENEFITS OF WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY

 

  • Cure of type 2 diabetes induced by obesity

  • Cure of hypertension induced by obesity 

  • Cure of obstructive sleep apnea (stop of breathing while sleeping)

  • Cure of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

  • Cure of arthritis induced by obesity

  • Cure of metabolic syndrome

  • Cure of gastro-esophageal reflux 

LAPAROSCOPIC GASTRIC BAND

The gastric band is a device that is placed on the upper portion of the stomach. The gastric band procedure is done laparoscopically with minimal incisions.

GASTRIC PLICATION SURGERY

 

Gastric plication surgery reduces the size of the stomach approximately 70% and limits the food intake. This procedure don't requiere the removal of the stomach. 

SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY

Sleeve gastrectomy surgery (gastric sleeve) is a restrictive procedure that requieres removal of 85% of your stomach.

SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY IN PATIENTS WITH CIRRHOSIS ​

There is evidence that bariatric surgery can be performed safely in select patients with cirrhosis. The benefits derived from weight loss and from the metabolic changes. 90% improved liver steatosis, 37% resolution of inflammation of the liver, 20% resolution of hepatic fibrosis.

MINIGASTRIC BYPASS

Minigastric bypass surgery combines gastric reduction and intestinal malabsorption but being less invasive than the traditional gastric bypass procedure.

ROUX-en-Y GASTRIC BYPASS

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass combines gastric reduction and intestinal malabsorption to achieve weight loss.

BILIOPANCREATIC DIVERSION WITH DUODENAL SWITCH

Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch requires removal of half of your stomach and bypass of more than 50% of your small intestine. This surgery is a modification of the conventional Biliopancreatic diversion, but with fewer side effects.

BARIATRIC REVISION SURGERY

Maybe you will be interest in a bariatric revision surgery if you are failing to lose as much weight as you need to, or maybe gaining weight back again. You may also need a revision if you are experiencing complication of the primary operation such as chronic diarrhea, un expected abdominal pain, ulcers and malabsorption.

This kind of surgery are complex and highly individualized, that's why not every bariatric surgeon makes them. The risk are much greater than primary operation, but the benefits could be much greater as well.
