What is BMI (Body Mass Index)?

It is the measure of body fat based on height & weight of the adult.

 

 Why surgery for obesity?

Obesity is classified according to BMI. Morbid obesity is BMI >40. This level of obesity will lead to many health problems like high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, joint disease etc...

While medical therapy and dietary modification can improve weight-related problems, however, they have high failure rate.

Surgical treatment will give long-term weight loss results. Surgery for obesity also provides better control of blood sugar and blood pressure, brings blood cholesterol to normal limits and improves exercise tolerance and sleep disorder.

Who is a candidate for weight-loss surgery?

  • Candidates must have a BMI greater than 40 or greater than 35 with medical Co-morbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol, degenerative joint disease, or sleep apnea.
  • Age greater than 18 or less than 60 years old.
  • Medically fit to tolerate major surgery.
  • Patients who have tried and failed with medical therapy and lifestyle modification.
  • No serious underlying psychiatric disorders, substance abuse, or narcotic dependency.
  • Complex medical conditions and limited mobility increase the risk of surgery and are considered on a patient-by-patient basis.

What are the options?


Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy: Following this, the patient's stomach will be significantly reduced in size and will accommodate less volume of food. This is a restrictive procedure, by this method, the patient will lose about 40 – 50% of his/her excess body weight.

Adjustable Laparoscopic Gastric Banding: A small pouch will be created by using an adjustable band around the top part of the stomach. Due to this pouch, you will feel full even after eating less food, which helps for weight loss.

Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass: This procedure is similar to gastric bypass procedure, whereas the way the intestines are rerouted is slightly different.
