Bariatric/obesity/weight loss surgery is a treatment option for patients suffering from morbid obesity. It is considered to be one of the most effective methods for weight loss and long-term weight maintenance. Moreover, this weight loss surgery causes significant improvement in obesity-related comorbid conditions like Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, joint pain, sleeping disorders like sleep apnea, heart diseases, infertility issues and more.
Bariatric surgery is performed using the Laparoscopic technique (Keyhole surgery – minimally invasive), and most of the patients are walking around on the same day of the surgery.
Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food intake, causing less absorption of calories, or by a combination of both gastric restriction and malabsorption. The weight loss surgeries are performed using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery).
