Bariatric Surgeon in Kharghar

Bariatric surgery is nothing but the common term collectively used for many types of weight-loss surgeries. These surgeries make changes to your digestive system to help you lose weight. They either limit the amount of food you can intake or reduce your ability to absorb nutrition, or, in some cases, both.

Such types of surgeries are done when diet or exercise plans have not worked out for the person and when the person has some serious health condition as a result of their weight. The most common types of bariatric surgery include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and duodenal switch.

Bariatric Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery is the most common type of bariatric surgery, and most surgeons prefer this surgery as it usually has fewer complications than other weight-loss surgeries do.

Gastric bypass surgery is also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. In this procedure, a small pouch that is in the stomach is connected to the small intestine directly. And so the food, once swallowed, passes from the small pouch of the stomach to the small intestine without passing through most of the stomach past the initial portion of the small intestine.

This procedure is the most common weight loss procedure followed worldwide, and as with any weight loss surgery, it is also done when the diet and exercise plan don’t work out for the patient.
