Weight-Loss Surgery Reduces Heart Disease

 

A research team led by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine examined 3,882 records of patients who had undergone weight-loss surgery and a similar group of people who had not undergone the procedure and followed them for up to around 4 years.
They found that weight loss surgery patients underwent rapid weight loss for the first 4 months after surgery at a rate of almost 5 kilos a month. Weight continued to fall off, albeit at a slower rate, up to the end of year 4.
The researchers found that gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy were more successful procedures for achieving weight loss than other types of procedure. The estimated average 4 year weight loss was 83.8 lb (38 kg) for gastric bypass, 68.3 lb (31 kg) for sleeve gastrectomy and 44 lb (20 kg) for gastric banding.

Gastrointestinal Diseases

Symptoms

  • Chest pain
  • Chronic and recurrent abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Halitosis

Treatments

There are so many treatment options,these will depend on the type of gastrointestinal diseases.Though many digestive problems can be treated successfully with lifestyle changes or medications, some conditions may require laparoscopic surgery.Laparoscopic surgery and hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS) are “minimally invasive” procedures commonly used to treat diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Unlike traditional surgery on the colon or other parts of the intestines where a long incision down the center of the abdomen is required, laparoscopic surgery requires only small “keyhole” incisions in the abdomen.In the case of hand-assisted surgery, a 3-4 inch incision is also used to allow the surgeon’s hand access to the abdominal organs. As a result, the person undergoing the procedure may experience less pain and scarring after surgery, and a more rapid recovery.

Outcomes after Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery makes the stomach smaller and causes food to bypass part of the small intestine. You will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size. This reduces the amount of food you can eat at one time. Bypassing part of the intestine reduces how much food and nutrients are absorbed. This leads to weight loss.

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure involves creating a stomach pouch out of a small portion of the stomach and attaching it directly to the small intestine, bypassing a large part of the stomach and duodenum. Not only is the stomach pouch too small to hold large amounts of food, but by skipping the duodenum, fat absorption is substantially reduced.Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass remains an excellent and durable operation for long-term weight loss and treatment of obesity-related comorbid disease.Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, or RNY Gastric Bypass, has minor complications that can result because of a successful surgery.

One of the most warned side effects is dumping syndrome. After gastric bypass eating food will change, your physician will give you recommendations as to how much to eat and when. It’s important to remember that your stomach is the size of a walnut; daily food consumption will be spread out over six or more meals per day. When you eat more food than was prescribed by your physician, you may experience dumping syndrome or intense pain under your breastbone.Laparoscopic RYGB results in highly favorable outcomes with reduced incisional hernia rates. These 10-year data help to more clearly define long-term outcomes and demonstrate outstanding reduction in comorbid disease following RYGB.

Obesity Symptoms and Treatments

Obesity means having too much body fat.Having too much body fat can lead to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure,arthritis,sleep apnea and stroke.The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, and/or body water. Both terms mean that a person’s weight is greater than what’s considered healthy for his or her height.Obesity can cause day-to-day health problems such as:

    • breathlessness
    • increased sweating
    • snoring
    • inability to cope with sudden physical activity
    • feeling very tired every day
    • back and joint pains
    • low confidence and self esteem

The treatment methods that are right for you depend on your level of obesity, your overall health and your willingness to participate in your weightlossplan Bariatric Surgery is the speciality dealing with obesity and its associated diseases.It include Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band replacement, Laparoscopic ROUX-EN-Y GASTRIC BYPASS, Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.Other treatment tools include dietary changes,exercise and activitybehavior change,prescription weight-loss medications.

Metabolic Surgery

Metabolic Syndrome is the condition of central (abdomen and chest) obesity with associated diseases like abnormal blood glucose (Diabetes or Pre-diabetes), Dyslipidemia (abnormal blood cholesterol) and Hypertension (high blood pressure). Metabolic Surgery deals with surgery for the management of Metabolic Syndrome.
We provide the following Metabolic Surgeries:

  • GASTRIC BYPASS
  • SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY

Gastric Bypass is a surgery that alters the GI tract to cause food to bypass most of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine.
Sleeve Gastrectomy (Vertical gastrectomy) is an operation that removes a large portion of the stomach and, in doing so, causes weight-loss. The remaining stomach is narrow and provides a much smaller reservoir for food.

 

DIGNITY

Our objective is to provide world class healthcare to our patients.
At present, some centres in India have the capability to provide the same level of treatment delivered in developed countries at a lower cost. But as in many other countries there is no uniformity or standardisation in the provision of healthcare in India.
Our aim is to provide the same level of care, following the same international guidelines by doctors with multinational training and expertise. We hope to provide consultations without the hassle of going to a hospital, in the convenience and privacy of our clinic in a patient friendly environment. Our approach is to explain the rationale of our treatment so that the patients are equal partners in their care. We will treat our patients with dignity and honesty.
