Stomach reduction surgery methods

In the past ten to fifteen years, surgical approaches have been used to treat obese patients with promising results.

During a gastrectomy, part of the stomach is removed. Resection of part of the stomach reduces the amount of food that can be eaten and leads to weight loss. In duodenal surgery, a portion of the intestine is removed along with the stomach.

Who are the candidates for gastric bypass surgery?

Sleeve gastrectomy Surgery obese people (ie those with a BMI greater than 50 kg/m²), a BMI between 35-40 and obesity, sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes, etc. It is suitable for people with high blood pressure causes. Although the age for gastric bypass surgery ranges between 18 and 65 years, the BMI set by the World Health Organization must be 35 and above in order to be eligible for the surgery. For people over 65 years of age, the necessity of surgery and the health status of the person should be taken into account.

It is very important for patients who are considered suitable for gastric bypass surgery, to make the most appropriate decision regarding the method of gastric bypass surgery. There are different methods of gastric bypass surgery.

Gastrecoma Arm

Sleeve gastrectomy is a type of surgery to remove part or all of the stomach. The most preferred application of sleeve gastrectomy in recent years is gastric cancer treatment and tumor resection. On the other hand, it is also used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and gastric emptying problems.

Gastric Band

During surgery, an hourglass-shaped silicone sleeve (bandage) is placed on the upper part of the stomach, which shrinks the lumen of the stomach and thus prevents food from moving. The diameter of the tape can be changed by injecting fluid into it through a “port” implanted under the skin. By placing a gastric band, the volume of the stomach and thus the amount of food taken can be limited.

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass (stomach) surgery is one of the most commonly used surgical procedures to treat obesity. These are methods that are considered both restrictive and malabsorption interventions. The most commonly used percutaneous resections are mini gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastrectomy (RYGB).

Gastric Balloon

Gastric balloon breathing is the fastest and easiest non-surgical nasal congestion procedure. A flexible silicone balloon is placed in the stomach using the endoscope. The empty balloon in the stomach is filled with sterile liquid. The bubbles fill most of the stomach and create a feeling of fullness. Balls work best with good nutrition and adequate physical activity.

Stomach Botox

Administration of botulinum toxin (botox) to the stomach is a relatively new method of weight loss based on endoscopic delivery of botulinum toxin to specific areas of the stomach. In this method, the contraction of the stomach muscles is limited and the gastric emptying time is prolonged, which causes the patient to lose his appetite.
