Obesity has grown out of proportions threatening our health, wellness as well as confidence. Weight loss surgeries have come as a blessing to those under threat of obesity induced diseases. They are an effective choice for those unable to shed the extra pounds in spite of diet and exercise.

Are you obese?

A BMI above 30 suggests you are obese and an index above 40 is morbidly obese.

Gastric bypass for morbid obesity

Gastric bypass is a long-term solution for weight loss. It involves the manipulation of stomach and small intestine to limit food intake and absorption.

Highlights of gastric bypass surgery

  • Stomach size is reduced

  • Less intake of food as you feel full with less food.

  • Absorption of food is limited due to bypass of some portion of stomach and small intestine.

Gastric Bypass Surgery Procedure

The gastric bypass surgery involves stapling the stomach to divide it into two parts, reducing its size. The top portion called pouch holds the food.

The bypass is done by connecting the pouch to a part of small intestine, effectively bypassing an area of the intestine to limit food absorption. The surgery is usually performed laparoscopically.

Dr. RK Sinha, leading laparoscopic and bariatric surgeon based in Mumbai is renowned for his specialised treatment for weight loss and obesity.
