For patients considering weight loss surgery, the division of bariatrics surgery at Ayushman hospital and care offers the most advanced bariatric surgical services, aftercare and post-operative counselling and nutrition planning.

We understand that for many people, weight-loss surgery is an effective way to treat their obesity or morbid obesity. There are three common types of weight-loss procedures :-

  • Sleeve gastrectomy: A restrictive procedure in which the surgeon removes two-thirds of the stomach. This provides a quicker sense of fullness and decreased appetite.
  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is both a restrictive and a malabsorptive procedure. In this procedure, the surgeon decreases the size of your stomach and causes food to go only through part of the small intestines.
  • Adjustable gastric banding is a type of restrictive procedure in which the surgeon places a band around the top of the stomach. This limits food intake, thus encouraging weight loss.

We also feel that it is our utmost responsibility to provide the patients needing surgery with the best comprehensive care, hence, we make available minimally invasive treatments and surgeries whenever possible.

Minimally invasive can be robot assisted or endoscopic. Both of these have their own benefits and are applied accordingly.

The benefits of minimally invasive robotic surgery can include:

  • Small incisions
  • Less pain
  • Low risk of infection
  • Short hospital stay
  • Quick recovery time
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss

On the other hand, the benefits of endoscopic surgical procedures can include:

  • Small incisions, few incisions, or no incision
  • Less pain
  • Low risk of infection
  • Short hospital stay
  • Quick recovery time
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss
