Top Bariatric Surgery in Agra by

Metabolic and bariatric surgery is the treatment of morbid obesity and obesity-related diseases and conditions that limit the amount of food the stomach can hold. It limits the amount of calories absorbed, by surgically reducing the stomach’s capacity to a few ounces. Candidates for bariatric surgery have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more, or a BMI of 35 or more with an obesity-related disease, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease or sleep apnea. Advanced Bariatric surgery can improve or resolve more than 30 obesity-related conditions, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, hypertension and high cholesterol.

Gastric Band: Adjustable gastric banding / gastric bands (sometimes known as a lap band) is a restrictive Bariatric surgical procedure. A silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch above the band that is about the size of a golf ball. This forms a large pouch below the band.

Gastric Bypass: There are several variations of a Gastric Bypass. The most common procedure in the UK is the Roux-en-Y, also known as RYGB. It is a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive procedures, therefore has a two-way weight-reducing effect. A small pouch is created by stapling off a section of the upper part of the stomach. Below the staple line, the stomach will remain but no food will enter here.

Gastric Sleeve: Gastric sleeve surgery is a restrictive procedure only. Two-thirds of the stomach is resected and removed, leaving a smaller stomach in the shape of a sleeve. The portion of the stomach removed produces a hormone that stimulates appetite and hunger. Removing this portion of the stomach results in a significant reduction in appetite.

Gastric Balloon: For many patients with a BMI (body mass index) of 27 – 35 surgery is not always available or recommended according to the NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) guidelines, as patients with a lower BMI do not normally qualify for weight loss surgery. The gastric balloon is a soft, expandable intragastric (inside the stomach) device that is temporarily inserted into the stomach.

Conversion Surgery: Surgery patients are not always successful in reaching their weight loss goals. Reasons for post-operative weight loss failure can include problems with the original surgery, as well as the patient’s inability to comply with necessary lifestyle changes.
