Laparoscopic Weight Loss Surgery in Ahmedabad

by Vipul P. Manufacturer of Aluminium Tower Ladder

Laparoscopic weight loss surgery is a surgical alternative for morbidly obese individuals looking for medical intervention to help them lose a large amount of weight. It is a gastric bypass procedure that is aided by a laparoscopy. The use of the laparoscopy is far less invasive and speeds recovery time dramatically. Although this type of surgery is gaining in popularity, it is not for everyone and is only considered for patients who are 100 pounds or more over their ideal body weight. Since morbidly or super morbidly obese individuals are at risk for such conditions as heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension or osteoarthritis, this surgery is often covered by insurance.  

Typically, the treatment of obesity is very difficult. Once an individual has become morbidly obese exercise is almost impossible. Candidates for the procedure have been assessed and have typically failed at multiple diet and exercise programs. The ideal laparoscopic weight loss surgery candidate must be carefully screened. Tests are performed and an overall health assessment is conducted which includes evaluating the health of the patient’s lungs, heart and endocrine system.

This is done to rule out any underlying problems that may have contributed to the obesity or that might put the patient at risk for surgery. The candidate must also undergo a psychological evaluation to determine if the patient is mentally prepared for a complete lifestyle change. Finally, nutritional counselling is done to educate the potential patient and teach them about the changes that will be required post-surgery.

There are various types of laparoscopic weight loss surgeries but they are all basically meant to bypass a portion of the stomach and/or intestine. The bypass process drastically reduces the amount of food the patient can consume as well as the calories that can be absorbed (in the case of intestinal bypass). When done laparoscopically bariatric surgery can be performed in less time, with less risk and with less healing time for the patient. The surgery is performed by making four to six small incisions in the abdomen.

These incisions become points of entry for surgical instruments, lights and the camera that will guide the surgeon. Next, the abdomen is inflated in order to allow for better viewing of the area. Surgical instruments are then inserted and the trained surgeon proceeds to bypass part of the stomach and/or intestine while still leaving the remaining portion to function normally.

Although any surgery is risky, most patients recover with no complications. Generally, the patient goes home from the hospital in 1-5 days and can return to work in a week or two. Of course, once at home a whole new life begins. It will include very specific dietary guidelines that must be followed. Regular follow-up visits are required for a year following the surgery and the patients’ health is monitored. Eventually, follow up become are made annually. As more pounds are shed more and more exercise can be added as a thinner, healthier person emerges as a result of Laparoscopic weight loss surgery.
