Surgical Treatment for Obesity
- Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
- Lap-Band surgery
Many obese patients are unwilling to undergo open surgeries
and resort to laparoscopic procedures. It involves less
of invasive surgical techniques. The same operation
is performed through small incisions through which the
surgeon inserts the camera and surgical instruments
to perform the surgery. This form of surgery is beneficial
for the patients as it reduces the risk of infection
and postoperative pain.
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
Laparoscopic surgeries have gained ground to treat obesity.
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is more commonly used method.
The surgery refashions the stomach into a small pouch
and by passes the small intestine. This surgical method
has been effectively used but patients are always advised
to study the risk factors before opting for Roux-en-Y
gastric bypass. This surgery limits your intake of food
and gives a feeling of fullness.
The Lap-Band or adjustable gastric banding surgery involves
reduced risk than Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. Unlike the
earlier bypassing the stomach, a balloon like band is
stapled around the stomach to produce a smaller upper
pouch. This makes the patient feel full after a small
meal. Through a tiny hole in the stomach the balloon
like device is inserted and inflated that limits the
stomach's capacity. The patient according to his needs
can adjust the band- tightening it or loosening it.
A portal under the skin of the patient is used to adjust
the amount of solution in it. This is an attractive
alternative for most of the patients wishing to reduce
weight through Laparoscopic operation.
