Gastric bypass in India at Hospitals of Mumbai with best healthcare facilities Hospitals of Mumbai ensure successful Gastric bypass in India at most advanced medical treatment centers at an attractive price. Bariatric surgery center in India provide super specialty weight loss treatment with advanced medical technology and expertise. Hospitals in India provide internationally accredited medical facilities for gastric bypass in India using the latest technologies and highly qualified Surgeons and hospital support staff. About Gastric Bypass: Gastric Bypass Surgery is a form of bariatric surgery or weight-loss surgery in which a portion of the stomach is stapled off and rendered unusable. The intestine is then reattached to the smaller portion of the stomach. With the newly reduced capacity of the stomach, patients of gastric bypass surgery cannot eat as much food as they did before because they feel “full” much quicker than before. Candidate for Gastric Bypass: For people who are obese, gastric bypass is the most recommended surgical procedure. Gastric bypass is a type of weight loss procedure designed to reduce weight in the person by manipulating the food intake and altering the digesting process subtly to facilitate weight loss. Any person with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 and above or someone with a BMI of 35, with one or more serious illness is a good candidate for gastric bypass surgery.
  2. 2. Variations in Gastric bypass: Currently, there are two techniques available for gastric bypass in India : • Roun-en-Y gastric bypass: This is the most commonly used gastric bypass procedure. The surgery can be performed either by using the traditional method, where one long incision is made or through laparoscopy where several small incisions are made. In this surgery, the stomach is made smaller by creating a small pouch in the top portion of the stomach using staples or a plastic band. The stomach is connected to the middle portion of the small intestine. The food by passes the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine and instead enters the middle portion of the small intestine directly. The smaller stomach feels hunger pangs less frequently and the bypassed small intestine absorbs fewer calories. This renewed digestive process results in weight loss eventually. Generally, Laparoscopic procedure is preferred since it involves lesser scarring and lets the patent recover quickly. • Biliopancreatic Diversion Bypass: This is an open surgery where one long scar is made. In this procedure, portions of the stomach are removed and the stomach is connected to the distal illium. So, when the food is ingested, it bypasses the duodenum and jejunum and reaches the final segment of the small intestine directly. The procedure does achieve weight loss, but is seldom used since there is a higher risk for nutritional deficiencies. • Recovery and care after Gastric Bypass surgery: Most people require two to five weeks of recovery, before returning to normal activities. The patient’s stomach will be swollen for a number of days after surgery. Discomfort and soreness in the stomach region is common for a couple of weeks following surgery. The doctor will prescribe medicines to help mange discomfort after surgery.
  3. 3. Patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery can lose up to 50% of the body weight within 6 months of surgery. The patient keeps losing weight up to a year after surgery. • The amount of food intake is naturally restricted through gastric bypass surgery. Also, your body is capable of absorbing less after surgery. So, it is important to include food rich in proteins and vitamins in your food. For those who have crossed 40, fiber rich foods are important. The consumption of water should be reduced, but not become too less. Once you fill your stomach with water, the amount of food it can take will be further reduced. Advantages of Gastric Bypass: • After gastric bypass surgery, weight loss is more predictable and usually maintained. Average excess weight loss is usually higher than with purely restrictive procedures. • One year after gastric bypass surgery, weight loss can average 65% to 70% of excess body weight. After 10 to 14 years, some patients have maintained 50-60% of excess body weight loss. • 96% of certain associated health conditions back pain, sleep apnea, high blood pressure; diabetes and depression are improved or resolved after gastric bypass. It also helps in leg swelling, high cholesterol, urinary incontinence etc. Risks of undergoing Gastric Bypass: As with any surgery, there can be complications that can arise. One of the most serious is leakage where the stomach pouch meets the small intestine. With no treatment, approximately one in four patients will develop gallstones following surgery. That is why a bile thinning medication is usually prescribed after surgery. Some other complications include abdominal hernia, wound infection and bowel obstruction. There is also the possibility of lung-related conditions,
  4. 4. such as pulmonary embolism, and additional stress on the cardiac system. Patients are usually monitored very closely during the post- surgical hospital stay for these reasons.
