What is Bariatric Surgery or Obesity Surgery?
Obesity is a serious, chronic disease that is known to reduce lifespan, increase disability and lead to many serious illnesses.
Bariatric surgery or Obesity surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on patients who are obese and extremely overweight. In obesity surgery or weight loss surgery is achieved by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a stomach bypass (gastric bypass) or reducing the size of the stomach through the removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or duodenal switch).
Long-term studies show the procedures can cause significant long-term loss of weight, recovery from diabetes, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, and a reduction in mortality. Thus patients who have received bariatric surgery or obesity surgery, especially such as Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery or Roux-en Y Bypass Surgery returned to a better life situation after.
When you should consider surgery?
Obesity or Weight loss surgery should be considered as a treatment option for patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 kg/m2 or greater who instituted but failed an adequate exercise and diet program. But also who present with obesity-related comorbid conditions, such as hypertension, impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, obstructive sleep apnea, and less mobility. Patients who consider a bariatric or weight loss surgery should find high-quality treatment at specialized clinics and hospitals with surgeons experienced in obesity and weight loss surgery.

What is Gastric Bypass Surgery or Roux-en Y Bypass?
What is Gastric Bypass Surgery or Roux-en Y Bypass?
Gastric bypass surgery refers to a surgical procedure in which the stomach is divided into small upper parts and much larger lower parts and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both.
Roux-en Y Bypass Surgery is an example of obesity surgery designed for obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 Kg/m2 or greater in cases of patients with certain comorbidity that are known to improve with weight loss, such as sleep apnea, diabetes, osteoarthritis, GERD, hypertension (high blood pressure), or metabolic syndrome, among others.
How does Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery work?
The gastric bypass pouch is usually formed from the part of the stomach which is least prone to stretching. The pouch (Smaller upper part) of the gastric bypass stretch may be 15 mL in size. While a normal stomach can stretch up to over 1000 ml. That and its small original size prevents any significant long-term change in pouch volume.
The size of the connection between the stomach and the intestine changes with time. This has the effect of increasing the ability of the small intestine to absorb a larger volume of food. The function of the pouch increases with the passage of time. If this is the case, a weight loss has occurred. The increased capacity should allow a lower weight to be maintained.

How is a Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass surgery performed?
Gastric Bypass Surgery is performed by dividing the stomach into a small upper part and a larger lower part and the small intestine is connected to both. By today bariatric surgeons have developed several different ways to reconnect the intestine. Any gastric bypass surgery leads to a reduction in the functional volume of the stomach.
The procedure is performed laparoscopically (Minimally invasive with instruments).
How long do I stay in the hospital after Gastric Bypass Surgery?
You stay 3-5 nights at the hospital after you had the procedure and another 5-7 days after hospital discharge. Hence your doctor sees you 2 times after surgery. He will check and control you to make sure everything is fine. At this time you have time for sightseeing and shopping with us. Our Care Team will assist and take care of you unless you fly home.
