Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy is also called vertical sleeve gastrectomy, where the outer margin of the stomach is removed to restrict food intake. With the removal of the outer margin, a sleeve of the stomach is left, which is roughly the size and shape of a banana. This is the muscle that controls the emptying of food from the stomach into the intestine. Sleeve gastrectomy is purely a restrictive procedure that limits food intake.

After the surgery, the patient usually eats a small amount of food because, with the reduction in the stomach size, the patient feels full after eating few calories. Also, the surgery helps in removing the portion of the stomach that generates a hormone that is responsible for making the patient hungry. Unlike the gastric bypass procedure, Sleeve gastrectomy is a simpler operation.

What Are The Advantages Of Sleeve Gastrectomy?

    • Reduced stomach without loss of function
    • Ideal for a morbidly obese person
    • 70-80% expected weight loss
    • Minimal risk of the infection
    • Less pain
    • Smaller scars
    • Quicker recovery
    • Shorter hospital stay

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery is a form of weight-loss surgery that involves creating a small incision and making a small pouch from the stomach. The laparoscopic instrument is used to connect the pouch directly to the small intestine. After the gastric bypass surgery, the food swallowed goes directly to the small pouch of the stomach. Thus, bypassing most of your stomach and the first part of your small intestine.

Gastric bypass surgery is usually performed by the doctors when diet and exercise haven't worked or if you are suffering from serious weight issues. Laparoscopic Gastric bypass can help you in long-term weight loss. Depending on your type of surgery and your change in lifestyle habits, you can lose huge amounts of weight. Sometimes, patients have been able to lose 60 percent of their weight.

What Are The Advantages Of Gastric Bypass?

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is a non-invasive, latest daycare endoscopic procedure where our team uses a thin, flexible endoscope camera and an endoscopic suturing device attached to its tip. The doctor inserts an endoscope down the patient's throat into the stomach, and thus, no incisions is required.

The doctor is able to examine the camera with the help of an endoscope, and the surgery is performed by making 12 sutures in the stomach. After the surgery, the shape of the stomach changes, and it looks like a tube. The person will consume fewer calories after the procedure.
