Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG)
This procedure involves the reduction of the size of the stomach making it tube-like in the process. This is a restrictive procedure that helps in achieving excellent weight loss. It is better suited for patients who are young with a less severe form of obesity with fewer associated diseases.
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)
This procedure involves the creation of a small stomach pouch along with a bypass of a small segment of intestines. Thus, this procedure causes both restriction of food intake as well as reduced absorption of food. This weight loss surgery is more suitable for higher BMI patients and those with severe diabetes.
Mini Gastric Bypass / One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass (MGB/OAGB)
This procedure involves the creation of a larger stomach pouch with a bypass of a segment of intestines. This procedure helps in achieving excellent weight loss with good resolution of diabetes.
Duodeno-jejunal Bypass (DJB)
This is another type of bypass along with a sleeve gastrectomy. This procedure is more suited for super-obese persons and patients with uncontrolled diabetes.
Single Incision (SILS) Bariatric Surgery
Single incision bariatric surgery involves performing bariatric procedures through a keyhole through the umbilicus. This procedure is almost scarless as the scar of the incision is hidden deep into the umbilicus. Very few centres in India offer this facility.
