Conditions

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, may be recommended for people who have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35 or higher with obesity-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea. Some common conditions that may require bariatric surgery include:

Severe obesity

Bariatric surgery may be recommended for people who are unable to achieve or maintain weight loss through diet and exercise alone.

Type 2 diabetes

Bariatric surgery can help improve blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes, often leading to a reduction or even remission of the disease.

High blood pressure

Bariatric surgery can help lower blood pressure in people with hypertension, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Sleep apnea

Bariatric surgery can help improve symptoms of sleep apnea, a condition where breathing stops and starts during sleep, often caused by obesity.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD):

Bariatric surgery can help improve symptoms of GERD, a condition where stomach acid flows back into the esophagus.

Joint pain

Bariatric surgery can help reduce pressure on the joints and improve symptoms of arthritis or other joint-related conditions caused by excess weight.

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)

Bariatric surgery can help improve liver function and reduce inflammation in people with NAFLD, a condition where fat accumulates in the liver.

Advance Treatments with SRV Hospital

The main types of bariatric surgery offered at SRV Hospital in Mumbai are:

Gastric bypass: A procedure that creates a small stomach pouch and reroutes the small intestine to the pouch, reducing the amount of food that can be eaten and absorbed. This can lead to significant weight loss and improvement in obesity-related health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.

Sleeve gastrectomy: A procedure that removes a large portion of the stomach, creating a smaller stomach that holds less food. This can lead to significant weight loss and improvement in obesity-related health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.

Adjustable gastric banding: A procedure that uses an adjustable band to create a small stomach pouch at the top of the stomach, reducing the amount of food that can be eaten. This procedure is less invasive than gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy and has less complications.

Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD/DS): A procedure that reduces the size of the stomach and reroutes the small intestine to a common channel with the stomach, reducing the amount of food that can be absorbed. This procedure leads to the most weight loss but also has more complications compared to other procedures. 

It’s important to note that these procedures are considered as a last resort after other methods such as lifestyle changes and medications have failed. Also, Bariatric surgery requires a lifetime commitment of following a strict diet and exercise regimen, and regular follow up with a bariatric team at SRV Hospital to ensure long-term success.
