Bypass Gástrico

Gastric Bypass Surgery is a surgical procedure that focuses on reducing the size and capacity of the stomach. In addition, a new intestinal connection is made, which allows leaving a portion of the intestine inactive to absorb nutrients. In these two ways the goal of controlled weight loss is achieved.

This procedure offers excellent weight loss and improvement in the diseases of Obesity.

Bypass Gástrico

Gastric sleeve

The Gastric Sleeve is a surgical procedure in which approximately 80% of the stomach is removed, reducing its capacity. The part of the stomach that is removed produces a substance Ghrelin, responsible for causing appetite, therefore the portions that you can consume will be small but without feeling hungry.

It is currently the most performed bariatric procedure worldwide due to its safety and effectiveness, achieving weight reduction and control of obesity-like diseases similar to gastric bypass.

Manga gástrica

Gastric balloon

The intragastric balloon is a sphere made of a soft and harmless material, which is inserted into the stomach and filled with a saline solution (500ml). The balloon inflated and floating in the stomach diminishes the sensation of hunger and gives a sensation of early satiety to the ingestion.

This procedure is performed by endoscopy and people who are eligible achieve weight losses of between 14 and 20 kg.

Balón Gástrico

Bariatric others

Other less common procedures are SADIS, Duodenal Switch and Gastric MiniBypass. The indications for these procedures are very precise and are only recommended in specific cases.

There are other procedures such as plication or gastric corset, which are only recommended as part of research protocols since they are still considered experimental and without conclusive results.

To know if a bariatric procedure is ideal for you, it is necessary for a specialist to assess your case. Call us, we will be happy to assist you.

Minimally invasive surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery, also called endoscopy or laparoscopy, is a procedure in which the surgeon uses an instrument called an endoscope, which is a long, thin tube with a tiny camera at the end. Instead of making a large incision in the patient, the doctor makes several small incisions (.5 to 1 cm) through which he introduces the specialized instruments to perform the procedure. This requires proper training from your Surgeon.

It has certain advantages such as: shorter hospitalization and recovery time, less post-surgery pain, fewer post-surgery infections, possibility of returning to daily activities in less time and of course less scarring.

The most frequent questions of our patients regarding bariatric surgery

As in any surgery there are risks, and it is very important to explain them to you in detail. The most frequent complications are minor, which means that they do not endanger the life of the patient. It can be about the risk of infection of the surgical wounds in the first place, others that could occur are intestinal ileus (paralysis of the intestine temporarily) or bleeding from somewhere that only requires medical treatment.

The frequency of severe complications is less than 1%. Among them are bleeding that warrants surgical reintervention, stapling line leak, pulmonary thromboembolism, deep vein thrombosis, intestinal obstruction due to internal hernia.
