Surgery Procedures Used for Surgical Treatment of Obesity
- Bariatric Surgery
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Roux En Y Gastric By Pass Surgery
- Transit Bipartition Surgery
- Restrictive and Malabsorptive Surgeries
Bariatric surgery is a term that refers to surgical procedures that assist in weight loss by making changes to the digestive system.
These operations are very effective in treating diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and high cholesterol, among many other diseases. These operations also have an ability to prevent future health problems.
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure that induces weight loss by restricting food intake. It involves the removal of approximately 80% of the stomach.
With this surgery the stomach is smaller, and also reduces the production of the hormone ghrelin, which regulates the appetite.
Better results are obtained with good adherence to dietary and behaviorial guidelines. With smart food choices, regular exercise and good eating habits, patients who have had a sleeve gastrectomy will maintain good weight loss.
- Roux En Y Gastric Bypass Surgery
The operation is a procedure that converts the stomach from a 2 litre capacity to a 30ml small pouch by dividing the upper part of the stomach. To enhance weight loss a loop of the small bowel is connected to the pouch and then a further second bowel connection allows bile and pancreatic fluid to drain to the bypassed bowel. The remainder of the stomach is left behind.
Most people approach goal weight by 12 months. An average excess body weight loss of 75% one year after surgery.
