  • 1. India is a Mecca for Reasonable price Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery: Plan it Medical tourism in India arranges Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery at an affordable cost with best medical facilities and accommodation. India has originated as one of the most important hubs for medical tourism. Many people from the developed countries come to India for the rejuvenation promised by yoga and Ayurvedic massage however, a nice blend of top-class medical expertise at attractive prices is helping more and more Indian corporate hospitals to lure foreign patients, including patients from developed nations such as the UK and the US, for high end surgeries like Laparoscopic gastric bypass in India. Gastric bypass surgery comes in many forms but the most popular are combination-techniques that shrink the stomach by stapling off a small section and shortening the small intestine by reattaching it at a lower point where fewer calories will be absorbed. Gastric bypass surgery and other bariatric procedures were traditionally performed with large incisions but laparoscopes have changed that resulting in lowered risks of many potential complications. Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery is a less-invasive technique involving several small incisions in the abdomen through which surgical instruments are inserted. The laparoscope (camera) is also inserted inside the abdomen so the surgeon can see. The benefits of Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery are smaller scars, lower risk of hernias, and faster recovery compared to traditional large incision gastric bypass surgery. Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery cannot be used, however, if the patient weighs over 500 pounds. A doctor may recommend a short-term weight loss procedure like mouth-wiring to lower the weight of the patient to 400 or less so laparoscopic bypass surgery can be performed. Benefits of Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery procedure: The most important benefit you will experience is significant weight loss, which occurs during the first year following surgery. Significant weight loss can make medical problems such as diabetes, hypertension and coronary artery disease easier to treat or may

Patients generally have less pain and scarring after surgery and recover more quickly. Laparoscopy also reduces your risk of developing hernias, which are more common after traditional abdominal surgery. Though gastric bypass procedure can be reversed, you should carefully consider all of the risks and benefits before electing to have this surgery. Surgical technique: The gastric bypass, in its various forms, accounts for a large majority of the bariatric surgical procedures performed. It is estimated that 70,000 such operations were performed in India in 2008. An increasing number of these operations are now performed by limited access techniques, termed “Laparoscopic”. Laparoscopic surgery is performed using several small incisions, or ports, one of which conveys a surgical telescope connected to a video camera, and others permit access of specialized operating instruments. The surgeon actually views his operation on a video screen. The method is also called limited access surgery, reflecting both the limitation on handling and feeling tissues, and also the limited resolution and two-dimensionality of the video image. With experience, a skilled laparoscopic surgeon can perform most procedures as expeditiously as with an open incision — with the option of using an incision should the need arise. The Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Roux-en-Y, first performed in 1993, is regarded as one of the most difficult procedures to perform by limited access techniques, but use of this method has greatly popularized the operation, with benefits which include shortened hospital stay, reduced discomfort, shorter recovery time, less scarring, and minimal risk of incision hernia. Types of gastric bypass surgery: 1. Gastric bypass, Roux en-Y (proximal): This variant is the most commonly employed gastric bypass technique, and is by far the most commonly performed bariatric procedure in India. It is the operation which is least likely to result in nutritional difficulties. 2. Gastric bypass, Roux en-Y (distal): The normal small bowel is 600 to 1000 cm (20 to 33 feet) in length. As the Y-connection is moved farther down the gastrointestinal tract, the amount of

Loop gastric bypass (Mini-gastric bypass): The Mini-Gastric Bypass, which uses the loop reconstruction, has been suggested as an alternative to the Roux en-Y procedure, due to the simplicity of its construction, which reduced the challenge of laparoscopic surgery. Before, during and after Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery: Before Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery: Patients considered for surgery must be carefully evaluated. Studies are performed to assess the health of the patient's cardiovascular, pulmonary, and endocrine systems. A psychological evaluation is considered essential by most physicians to determine a potential patient's response to weight loss and change in body image and ability for permanent lifestyle change. Nutritional counseling is also a must before surgery. During Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery: Various laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgical procedures have evolved in an effort to "shunt" or bypass a portion of the stomach. The procedures we perform at Cleveland Clinic are laparoscopic isolated gastric bypass, adjustable gastric band, and sleeve gastrectomy. After Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery: Most patients recover from surgery with no complications. 1. The hospital stay is usually 1 to 3 days. 2. You may be off work for 2 to 4 weeks. 3. Once at home, you will need to follow specific eating guidelines. Your dietitian will assist you in understanding and adjusting to these guidelines. 4. Regular follow-up visits are scheduled during the first year after surgery to check your overall physical and mental health, metabolism and nutritional status. 5. Many patients will need plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) 1 to 2 years after weight loss to remove skin folds around the abdomen.
  • 4. As more and more patients from Europe, the USA and other nations with high medical costs look for effective options, healthcare tourism in India is definitely on the cards for most of them and the fast growing Indian corporate health sector is fully geared to meet that need. Medical health care centers of Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad have best medical facilities for Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. The trend has grown on the precedence of combining a holiday with treatment. More and more countries are offering package surgeries which combine low cost, more specialist treatment prompting a greater movement of people worldwide for such procedures.
