Weight Loss Surgery or Bariatric Surgery, also known as Metabolic Surgery is done on people having a BMI of more than 40. Such morbidly obese people are in the risk category of developing diseases like Diabetes, Coronary Artery Disease, Joints and Back Pain and many other health issues. When all methods like exercise and diet fail to achieve weight loss then Bariatric Surgery is an option. The most common bariatric surgery procedures are gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.
After the surgery the patient will not be able to eat much food and some patients start eating high calorie sweets and chocolates which negates the benefits of the surgery. If the patient follows the prescribed diet then the body weight starts decreasing at the rate of 5-6 kg per month and within 3-4 months the patient becomes lighter by atleast 20 kg. The body weight continues to fall upto 6-8 months till it comes to the normal levels. During this time the patient has to take essential supplements for the vitamins and minerals otherwise the body will become deficient in these and can cause harm to your health.
Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold, causing malabsorption of nutrients, or by a combination of both gastric restriction and malabsorption. Most weight loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery). Some of the patients require Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck Surgery alongwith the Bariatric Surgery or at a later date to remove the excess flesh at the tummy. Our team of Cosmetic Surgeon and laparoscopic surgeons in India specialize in this surgery.
Our surgeons prefer to do Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy for weight loss in the Manesar Hospital. In this surgery a part of the stomach is cut and removed. The rest of the stomach is stitched together using staplers. This makes the stomach in the shape of a shirt's sleeve and thus the name of the surgery is `Sleeve Gastrectomy'. The part of the stomach which is removed causes hunger and the patients who undergo sleeve gastrectomy would feel much less hungry after the surgery. Since the size of the stomach is also reduced, they would feel full with much less food intake. The combination of feeling less hungry and eating lesser food results in weight loss without much effort.
Dr Pramod Prasad and Dr Sumita Singh are two of best Laparoscopic Surgeons in Manesar and Gurgaon for doing the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy. Patients undergoing the Bariatric Surgery are morbidly obese and could have other health conditions. This requires a team effort to manage the patient during and after the surgery. Our team of doctors also include Dr Sanjeev Sharma, physician and pulmonologist who manages the patient post surgery. The hospital stay is just 2 days and the total recovery would take place in 7-10 days.
The cost of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is Rs. 2,50,000 with 2 days of stay in the hospital in a single airconditioned room. If abdominoplasty is done alongwith the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy then the cost for both the surgeries would be Rs. 3,50,000 and the hospital stay would be 3 days. However if abdominoplasty is done at a later date then the cost would be Rs. 1,50,000 with 3 days of hospital stay.
A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience. We do not claim to be a tertiary care hospital providing services across all the streams of medicine and surgery but whatever service you get at Yashlok Hospital are first class in terms of quality.
We are probably the only hospital which has an inhouse Ultrasound and Colour Doppler facility. The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.
Healthcare is a very different stream from any other service industry. People come to us only when they are in a problem which they are not able to understand. All our team members are thoroughly trained to provide the medical care with highest ethical standards and with compassion and empathy. The entire care programme is designed keeping the centricity of the patient in mind.
