Methods Used by Doctors for Weight Loss Surgery Abroad

Keeping a healthy weight is critical in maintaining good health and preventing risks of developing

medical problems that are commonly associated with obesity. Bariatric surgeries are procedures that

aid in weight-loss and help manage obesity either by restriction or malabsorption. Restriction

surgeries are done in order to physically control or limit what the stomach can hold. By restricting

the amount of food that your stomach can receive, the number of calories that you can digest is also

controlled. Malabsorption surgeries, on the other hand, bypass or shorten a portion of the small

intestine, thus reducing the amount of nutrients and calories that the body absorbs.

There are four common methods of weight-loss surgery used by physicians including:

•The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery–In this bypass surgery, a small pouch is created at

the top part of the stomach. This pouch receives all the food, thus limiting the amount the patient

can comfortably drink or eat at one time. The main portion of the stomach continues to produce

digestive juices. The small intestine is cut just below the main stomach and is then connected to

the new pouch so food can flow directly from the pouch to the small intestine. The small portion of

the intestine that is still attached to the main stomach is then reattached farther down so digestive

juices can flow as usual.

•The Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding procedure – Here, an inflatable and adjustable

balloon is placed and fixed around the stomach’s upper region, thus creating a small pouch with a

narrow opening that leads to the rest of the organ. This restricts the amount of food the stomach

can hold, helping patients feel full sooner, although it doesn’t necessarily reduce caloric and nutrient

absorption.

•Sleeve Gastrectomy – In this procedure, a portion of the stomach is cut and removed from the

body, while the remaining section is shaped into a tube-like form that can’t hold as much food. A

smaller stomach also produces less ghrelin (appetite-regulating hormone), which lessens the

patient’s desire to eat.

•The Biliopancreatic diversion procedure – Like sleeve gastrectomy, biliopancreatic diversion

starts with the removal of a large part of the stomach, leaving the valve that releases food to the

small intestine along with the duodenum (upper portion of the small intestine). The middle section

of the intestine is closed off, and the lower part is attached directly to the duodenum. The middle

part is then reattached to the end of the intestine, allowing digestive juices to flow. As a result,

absorption of nutrients and calories is reduced instead of simply curbing appetite.
