At Sahyadri we use modern techniques and two different types of "Bariatric Surgeries" which is only available at our Deccan and Nagar Road Hospital.
It is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature.
A restrictive procedure that limits the amount of food you can eat by reducing the size of your stomach laparoscopically from 1500ml to approximately 150 ml. It helps in effective controlling / curing co-morbidities and achieving weight loss of approximately 70% excess weight in one year.
This type of surgery refers to a surgical procedure in which the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower "remnant" pouch and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both.
A gold standard procedure by isolating a portion of the stomach and connecting to the distal part of the small intestine. It is done laparoscopically and effectively helps in controlling / curing co-morbidities and achieving weight loss of approximately 80% of excess weight in one year.
