Bariatric Surgery: The most reliable weight reduction method
Bariatric surgery is one of the most effective treatment methods for people with very high BMI who instituted, but failed an adequate exercise and diet program (with or without adjunctive drug therapy) and who present with obesity-related comorbid conditions, such as hypertension, impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidaemia, and obstructive sleep apnea. In Bariatric Surgery, weight loss is achieved through reducing the size of the stomach by removing a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery) or mini bypass surgery which uses a combination of above mentioned methods.
Bariatric Surgery helps to reduce excess weight by restricting or reducing the amount of food that one can eat; inducing early satiation thereby reducing craving for food; reducing calorie absorption into the body; and improving metabolism through hormonal changes
