Low Cost and Advanced Robotic Bariatric Surgery in India

What is Bariatric Surgery or Weight Loss Surgery?

Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, is a type of procedure performed on people who are Morbidly obese for the purpose of losing weight.

This weight loss is usually achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with an implanted medical device (gastric banding) or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch.

Long-term studies show the procedures cause significant long-term loss of weight, recovery from diabetes, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, and a reduction in mortality of 23% to 40%.

What is Morbid Obesity?

Robotic Bariatric Surgery India

Obesity is considered a health "condition". A person is considered "obese" when he or she weighs 20% or more than his or her ideal body weight. At that point, the person's weight poses a real health risk. Obesity becomes "morbid" when it significantly increased the risk of one or more obesity related health conditions or serious diseases. Morbid obesity - sometimes called "clinically severe obesity" - is defined as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or higher.

Life can all be overwhelming, especially when considering the serious and sometimes life threatening health risks that are caused by obesity. Obesity is strongly associated with high blood pressure, Diabetes, infertility, arthritis, heart and lung disease, and a shortened life span.

Obesity can severely affect the quality of your life! It is a disease that is so powerful that you alone cannot cure it. Just like any other disease, obesity needs intervention and should not be ignored. It is no one’s fault that he or she is obese. Many of you have probably struggled with why you are obese and feel defeated by your inability to change your weight. But no matter how many diets you try, diets often have a minimal and short term impact on weight loss. Statistics show despite diet plan, 95% of people will regain their weight. The only proven long-term solution to obesity and its related illness is weight loss surgery.

Weight Loss Surgery or Bariatric Surgery, despite its modest risks, can drastically improve your life. You can have control and make decisions toward a healthier future. We offer minimally invasive surgical options like laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG), Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass (RYGB), Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band (LAGB) using the most advanced techniques for permanently treating obesity and its related complications.

Gastric Bypass Surgery in India is a well-developed superspeciality. I have tried to answer most of the frequently asked questions that one has in his mind about this weight loss surgery.

What is the need to undergo surgical treatment of obesity (Bariatric surgery)?

Various studies all over the world have proved that surgery is the most dramatic and durable treatment option for morbid obesity. With the current surgical procedures, a loss of 68-78% excess body weight is lost. The most dramatic loss is in the first six months. The procedures like Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Sleeve gastrectomy reduce food intake because of early filling as well as decreased hunger. This avoids ‘starvation’ to get slimmer.

Am I a candidate for surgical treatment for obesity?
Yes! if you are an Indian/Asian and have BMI of 37.5 or more BMI Calculator, your should strongly consider Obesity Surgery, as it is the only durable option at this stage. If you are a hypertensive or diabetic or have any other obesity related diseases, surgery is recommended at a BMI of 32.5 or more.

Body Mass Index (BMI)

Body Mass Index expresses the ratio between a person’s body weight and height.
BMI= Weight in Kilograms/(Height in metres)2

Obesity is a chronic disease since its symptoms develop gradually. Obesity may also cause joint pain, back aches, breathlessness and skin problems. In severe conditions morbid obesity may also lead to life threatening conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels ,sleep apnoea and cancer.

What are the surgical options:

With the advent of latest technology and skills, patients now get a minimally invasive advantage of key hole surgery leading to fast recovery, less pain, better cosmesis, small scars and early return to work.

Types of Bariatric Surgery:

Laparoscopic / Robotic Sleeve Gastrectomy

In this restricive procedure, the capacity of stomach is reduced to approximately 100ml, so the patient feels full early during a meal. It also shifts the hormonal balance so he/she feels less hungry between meals.

In LSG, the stomach is divided along the greater curvature to create a 60-100 ml sleeve of stomach using endoscopic staplers. The staple line is always oversewn for extra security and safety to prevent any leak or bleed from staple line. The integrity of the pouch is checked using per-operative gastroscopy. The excised portion of stomach is removed in a plastic bag. A small abdominal drain is usually left which is taken out after 48-72 hours.

In our own series of patients who underwent LSG, there is a weight loss to the tune of 70-95% of excess body weight. Resolution of Diabetes occurred in 78.94%, resolution of HTN occurred in 72%, and OSA improved in 93% patients. Mean Quality of life index improved from 2.7 to 8.2 (out of 10).

Laparoscopic / Robotic Roux-n-Y Gastric Bypass (LRYGB)

It is also an effective procedure for resolution of diabetes, sleep apnea and control of hypertension. In this, a small gastric pouch of 15-20ml is created, which a reduction of food intake at a time. The intestinal architecture is then changed so that a large portion (175-250cm) of small intestine is bypassed, before the digestion and absorption of food starts. This results in malabsorption of food, and subsequent drastic weight loss. In the end, the integrity of pouch is checked using per-operative gastroscopy. A small abdominal drain is usually left which is taken out after 48-96 hours

What do I expect after surgery?

After the surgery, the patient is kept overnight under close observation. Next day, the patient is started on a clear liquid diet after doing a contrast X-ray study, and shifted to room. He/she is encouraged to walk and do all routine activities.

He/she is discharged on the third or fourth day of surgery depending on the comfort of the patient and amount of oral intake. A detailed and properly explained discharge summary is given to the patient along with a diet chart.

First follow-up visit is after seven days and then at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year and yearly thereafter. The patients are encouraged to exercise and do maximum physical activity. One can expect an excess body weight loss to the tune of 70-95 % depending on the procedure and compliance of the patient with the instructions. A long term dietary supplementation is usually required with RYGB but not so with LSG.
