Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery

It is now known all over the world that Obesity Surgery is the most effective method for permanent weight loss and this is supported by many scientific articles. One of the most frequently asked questions in patients considering these surgeries; “How will I decide which method is right for me?”.

Patients who have undergone obesity surgery achieve a high rate of expected weight loss. However, it may be that they regain some weight over time. This situation occurs when they do not make the necessary lifestyle and diet changes within the first year after weight loss surgery. Unfortunately, if patients do not start working on lifestyle changes right away, this can negatively affect weight loss and weight maintenance.

 

Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy​

The objective of the operation is to resect the fundus, the portion of the stomach that is the prime source of hunger hormones, as well as to decrease the functioning part of the stomach. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is now an established stand-alone bariatric procedure worldwide.

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass, also called Roux-en-Y (roo-en-wy) gastric bypass, is a type of weight-loss surgery that involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine. After gastric bypass, swallowed food will go into this small pouch of stomach and then directly into the small intestine, thereby bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine.

Mini Gastric Bypass

The Mini-Gastric Bypass or single anastomosis gastric bypass, is an effective and well-established procedure which combines some of the properties of a gastric sleeve and a standard gastric bypass. The upper part of the stomach is divided into a tube, similar to the top three quarters of a sleeve, and then joined to a loop of intestine.

The Gastric Balloon

The Gastric Balloon is a medical grade, saline-filled gastric balloon that rests in the stomach cavity and decreases appetite by occupying approximately a third of the stomach volume. In addition, with the gastric balloon in place, the stomach empties more slowly, keeping you feeling full longer.

Revisinional Bariatric Surgery

Intervention of complications in patients who have undergone Bariatric Surgery and/or the introduction of a different bariatric surgery after regaining weight in the following years is called revision surgery.

Transit Bipartision

This surgical technique is much similar to the gastric sleeve operation, with the addition of the entire distal part of small bowel is brought to the lower stomach and a second exit is provided, therefore all the food can pass through the entire small bowel segments.
