What is Obesity?
Gaining extreme weight is called as obesity due to the accumulation of excess fat in the body, which negatively affects the quality of life and health of the person, and at the same time restricts his movements and causes serious illnesses.
We can explain obesity in two ways: apple type and pear type. What is important here is the diagnosis and treatment of fat tissues in which part of the body is collected. In apple-type obesity, fat accumulates around the navel, while pear-type obesity is observed to accumulate in the hips and basins. If the waist circumference of men exceeds 94 cm and in women exceeds 80 cm, it is considered as an increased risk.
How is obesity measured?
The obesity classification of the World Health Organization ( WHO) is used for the measurement of obesity and it is generally measured by Body Mass Index (BMI). Body mass index is obtained by dividing the weight in kilograms by the square of the length in meters.
Classification according to body mass index:
-Value Range Result Below 18.5 kg / m² Thin
-18.5 – 24.9 kg / m² Normal weight
-25 – 29,9 kg/m² Over weight
-30 – 39,9 kg/m² Obese Above
-40 kg/m² Morbid Obese (Severe Obese)
What types of surgeries are available?
Our surgical team specializes in minimally invasive surgery, which involves small incisions using tiny instruments and a camera to guide the procedure. That means you’ll have less scarring, reduced pain, fewer complications and a quicker recovery.
We offer the following surgeries:
NON SURGICAL WEIGHT LOSS:
- Gastric Botox:
(BTX) is a non-surgical weight loss procedure to block gastric muscles and nerves affecting appetite and hunger temporarily for several months.
- Intragastric Balloon:
In this procedure, a balloon is placed without incisions for gastric short-term weight loss.
- Gastric Sleeve:
Gastric Sleeve Surgery, often called “sleeve surgery” is a bariatric surgery procedure whose primary function is to facilitate intake restriction by permanently reducing the volume of a patient’s stomach. The gastric sleeve success rate is approximately 90%
- Gastric Bypass:
Gastric bypass is a type of weight-loss surgery that involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine.
- Transit Bipartition Surgery
Transit bipartition surgery means “two-way transition”. An expanded sleeve gastrectomy is applied in this surgery. Following this, the lower part of the small intestine is connected with the remaining stomach part.
- Ileal Interposition Surgery
Ileal interposition, previously called “transposition,” is another procedure being investigated to treat type 2 diabetes. Ileal transposition involves the removal of a small segment of the ileum with its vascular and nervous supply and inserting it into the proximal small intestine.
