Weight Loss Surgery

Bariatric Surgery ( Weight Loss Surgery )

Bariatric Surgery (also called Weight Loss Surgery) is performed on obese patients for reduction of weight & also for relief from co-morbidities like diabetes, hypertension and obstructive sleep apnoea. 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 by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (Roux en y gastric bypass/Minigastricbypasssurgery).
