patients have shown wonderful results after the procedures. Most of our
patients lose between 50 and 80 percent of their excess body weight during the
18 to 24 months following surgery.
TYPES OF WEIGHT-LOSS SURGERIES
75% of the stomach is removed leaving a narrow gastric “tube” or “sleeve”.
GASTRIC BANDING: The gastric band is placed around the uppermost
part of the stomach to create a small upper pouch and a lower stomach.
GASTRIC BYPASS: A small stomach pouch is created using staples,
then attached to a segment of small intestine directly.
ENDOSCOPIC MANAGEMENT OF OBESITY: It is a non-surgical & scar-less procedure.
A balloon is endoscopically inserted in the stomach This restricts the
stomach's capacity to accommodate large volumes of food, resulting in decreased
caloric intake and weight loss.
