Bariatric Surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a diversity of techniques performed on individuals who have obesity. Weight loss is attained by plummeting the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through the exclusion of a part of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic redirection with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-directing the minor digestive tract to a little stomach sacks (gastric bypass surgery).

There are two basic types of Bariatric Surgery:

 1. Restrictive Surgeries: Restrictive surgeries work by physically restricting the size of the stomach and slowing down digestion.

 2. Malabsorptive Surgeries: Malabsorptive surgeries are more invasive surgeries that, in addition to restricting the size of the stomach, physically remove parts of the digestive tract, interfering with absorption of calories.

In minimally invasive surgery, doctors use a variety of techniques to operate with less damage to the body than with open surgery. In general, minimally invasive surgery is associated with less pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications.

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery can include:

  • Small incisions
  • Less pain
  • Low risk of infection
  • Short hospital stay
  • Quick recovery time
  • Less scarring


Types of Minimally Invasive Surgery
 

Surgeons perform many minimally invasive surgeries, including:

 

  • Adrenalectomy to remove one or both adrenal glands
  • Anti-reflux surgery, sometimes called hiatal hernia repair, to relieve gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Cancer surgery, for example, to destroy a tumor
  • Colectomy to remove parts of a diseased colon
  • Colon and rectal surgery
  • Ear, nose and throat surgery
  • Endovascular surgery to treat or repair an aneurysm
  • Gallbladder surgery (cholecystectomy) to remove gallstones that cause pain
  • Gastroenterologic surgery, including for gastric bypass
  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Heart surgery
  • Kidney transplant
  • Nephrectomy (kidney removal)
  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Splenectomy to remove the spleen
  • Thoracic surgery, such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)
  • Urologic surgery

Gastric bypass surgery is a type of bariatric, or weight loss, surgery. During gastric bypass surgery, your physician makes changes to your stomach and small intestine to change the way they absorb and digest food. Gastric bypass aids weight loss by: Restricting the amount of food that your stomach holds.

The urologists bid minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery for several urological diseases including prostate cancer, kidney obstruction, and bladder reconstruction. Robotic-assisted surgery provides parallel benefits in children with a short period of time and improved therapies. Robotic surgery enables urological surgeons to perform more precise operation than conventional surgery.

  • Prostatectomy
  • Partial and Total Nephrectomy
  • Cyst Removal
  • Cystectomy
  • Pyeloplasty
  • Ureteral Implantation

Nutrition Diet recommendations after gastric bypass surgery vary depending on your individual situation. A gastric bypass diet typically follows a staged approach to help you ease back into eating solid foods. How quickly you move from one step to the next depends on how fast your body heals and adjusts to the change in eating patterns. You can usually start eating regular foods about three months after surgery.

  • Eat and drink slowly
  • Keep meals small
  • Drink liquids between meals
  • Chew food thoroughly
  • Focus on high-protein foods
  • Avoid foods that are high in fat and sugar
  • Take recommended vitamin and mineral supplements
