Bariatric Bypass Surgery In Kolkata – A Hope For Survival

by Ankita Srivastav Health Advisior & Consultant

The word ‘surgery’ acts like a danger indicator in the minds of a layman. Irrespective of whether it is a minor or a major one, people have always feared it as if something worse is going to happen to them. However, in context to medical aid, surgery is a boon that offers a healthier tomorrow. Bariatric Bypass Surgery in Kolkata has recently got a lot of attention because of its ability to retrieve a new life to obese.

Bariatric Bypass Surgery – its meaning

Bariatric Bypass Surgery refers to a form of surgery where a gastric band is placed in the stomach of the patient. Upon placement of the band, the stomach size decreases and hence, patient’s food consumption reduces. Reduced intake of food allows the patient to burn the extra calories which is already present in the body. Nonetheless, this form of surgery is not available for all. There are two categories of patients who can undergo this surgery, that too, only if the surgeon advises. They are:
    1. Patients with BMI of 40 or more,
    2. Patients with BMI less than 40, but with problems such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, symptoms of stroke, heart disease, etc.

When is weight loss surgery carried out?

As a layman, one should consider that weight loss surgery is the last resort to save a human life. As long as there is a possibility of recovering from natural actions such as changing the diet and increasing the inner strength through exercise, health experts would never recommend a surgery. Only when it appears that the existing weight or further weight gain can result into death of the patient, surgeons take a call on surgery.

With modern-day medical solutions, surgical procedure has also become sophisticated. Surgeons now prefer to operate laparoscopically. It is a process where a small incision is made in the patient’s stomach and the whole surgery is performed through the same small incision. After few months post-surgery, the wound heals completely, and the areas is almost scarless. Thus, people such as close relatives and friends cannot even make out that the patient had undergone a lifesaving surgery just months before.

Bariatric Bypass Surgery in Kolkata is an access for quality weight loss treatment not only in Eastern India, but also for countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and others.
