With comfortable living conditions, there has been a rise in cases of obesity in India. The country today faces a challenge with more than 135 million individuals being obese and overweight. If you are suffering from morbid obesity that is affecting your quality of life, consult Dr. Jay Chokshi. The GI surgeon is experienced in dealing with all ailments related to obesity and gastrointestinal tract.

What kind of Bariatric Surgeries help fight Obesity?

Usually, patients who have a BMI of more than 40 are considered to be morbidly obese. Surgical treatment becomes necessary for those patients who have been unable to lose weight and want a solution to their growing obesity complications. Most bariatric surgeries are now done with the help of laparoscope that promises faster discharge from the hospital, quicker recovery and minimal scarring.

1. Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy – Restrictive Procedure

In this surgery, the doctor will remove 80% of stomach & only small tube-like stomach remains after the surgery. It is mainly a restrictive type of obesity surgery without the removal of intestines or any type of bypass. It does not cause decreased absorption of nutrition and the doctor will only reduce the size of the stomach so that it holds less food than before. This way, the patient will feel full quickly and thus, it will aid in weight loss.

2. Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery - Restrictive + Malabsorption Procedure

Also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass" (RYGB), the laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery allows for restriction of food as well as limits the absorption of food. It means even if the patient overeats food, the absorption of nutrients and calories will be limited.

In this surgery, there is a very small pouch of stomach that is similar to a sleeve gastrectomy. The remaining part of the stomach is not removed completely but connected to lower portion of the jejunum, thus bypassing the process of caloric absorption. This bypass reduces the number of calories and nutrients that the body will absorb and thus, promotes weight loss.

3. Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass / One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass surgery (OAGB) - Restrictive + Malabsorption Procedure

This surgery combines a few features of the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and the traditional/standard gastric bypass. In this weight loss surgical procedure, the doctor will divide the upper part of the stomach and connect it to the loop of intestines. It is both restrictive with malabsorptive surgery that is helpful for those patients who have had an obesity procedure in the past but are unable to achieve successful weight loss results. It is much less intensive than the traditional gastric bypass and so, it ensures faster recovery.

Dr. Jay Chokshi believes in a comprehensive treatment plan for patients looking to ensure a sustainable weight loss. In addition to obesity surgeries, the GI surgeon will help you to ensure a healthy weight after the surgery so that you can avoid many obesity-related diseases and complications such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, etc.
