As a leading cause of mortality, morbidity and disability, the high prevalence of Obesity continues to burden the overall healthcare sector. Obesity is one of the most invasive diseases that are in urgent need of new medical planning and preventive means and along with obesity come life-threatening risks like:

  • Cardiovascular disease (mainly heart disease and stroke) — already the world’s number one cause of death
  • Diabetes (type 2) — which has rapidly become a global epidemic
  • Musculoskeletal disorders — especially osteoarthritis
  • Some cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon)

For a number of patients, weight loss surgery or Obesity surgery or Bariatric surgery is the only supportive method.

This results in weight loss due to loss of appetite and the inability to consume larger quantities of food. The body uses the required energy from its own fat storage helps in weight loss.

  3. The Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass: This procedure involves creating a small 15 to 20 cc pouch at the top of the stomach. The small bowel is divided, the bilio-pancreatic limb is attached again to the small bowel and the other end is the joined to the pouch, creating the Roux limb. The small pouch discharges the food slowly, causing a sensation of fullness with very little food intake.

  4. Bilio-pancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch: It is a procedure with two components. First, a smaller, tubular stomach pouch is formed by removing a portion of the stomach. Next, a large portion of the small intestine is bypassed.
