Conditions of Bariatric Surgery (Obesity Surgery)

 

 

Laparoscopic Surgery for Obesity (Bariatric surgery)

Obesity today is recognized as a health problem of epidemic proportions. Obesity refers to a spectrum of problems of excess weight ranging from mild overweight to the morbidly obese. Patients with morbid obesity do not respond to medical means of weight loss. Efforts to treat morbid obesity through controlled diets, behavior modification and exercise programs are only temporarily successful with the patient invariably regaining even more weight than the amount lost. Obesity surgery is the only method by which long-term weight loss can be achieved in these patients. Seven to nine percent (7-9%) people in India are overweight, of which 20 - 25% are morbidly obese which amounts to a staggering 2 - 2.5 million people. Incidence of child hood obesity is on the rise due to changing lifestyles. These people are more likely to develop obesity related complications at an earlier age. If not addressed today this problem is likely to compound imposing heavily on medical resources.

Surgical procedures for obesity can now be safely performed by endoscopic or laparoscopic approach. These morbid patients stand to benefit tremendously by laparoscopic surgery decreasing the hospital stay, minimizing pain and an early return to activity. Laparoscopic gastric banding has emerged as a highly popular and successful surgery for morbid obesity. A biocompatible, silicon band is placed around the stomach just below the food pipe creating a 30ml pouch (~ 2 table spoonful). The patient feels full after just two bites of food thus decreasing the intake and resulting in the weight loss. The procedure is safe, simple and reversible. It can be done as a short stay procedure (hospitalization for 24 to 48 hours).

It is a very patient friendly procedure and has no cut on the abdominal wall hence an excellent cosmetic result (only few tiny puncture marks), very little pain is caused by the surgery and patient can resume his or her work within few days after surgery.

Weight Loss Surgery Procedures

Restrictive and Malabsorptive Procedures. There are two basic mechanisms of weight loss surgery.

  1. Restrictive procedures decrease food intake by creating a small upper stomach pouch to limit food intake
  2. Malabsorptive procedures alter digestion, thus causing the food to be properly digested and completely absorbed.
  3. There are several procedures that combine the restrictive and malabsorptive mechanisms of weight loss surgery.
