Advanced Laproscopic & Bariatric Surgeries or weight loss surgery is performed on the people suffering with obesity. These surgeries target either a part of the stomach or a rerouting of the small intestine. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach. It is the result of malabsorption of nutrients, and also that causes weight loss with the help of gastric restrictions and also leads to hormonal changes.
Bariatric Surgery may also be performed using an “open" approach, which involves cutting, open the abdomen or by means of laparoscopy, during which a thin light tube is inserted into the abdomen through a tiny incision. The greatest advantage of laparoscopic is the comfort for the patient because it is less painful and the patient recovers faster.
