Types of Bariatric Surgery
Endoscopic intragastric balloon or briefly gastric balloon is a relatively new and non-surgical bariatric treatment procedure. It has been developed with intent to fill the gap between dieting and exercising only and undergoing more complicated bariatric surgical procedures.
As can be seen from these options, prevention of weight regain is not guaranteed in any procedure, and it is possible to find a solution for all problems. What should essentially be understood is that if there is no technical error (such as incomplete removal of the fundus is sleeve gastrectomy), the underlying cause of weight gain is almost completely the non-compliance with eating habits and lifestyle changes.
Sleeve gastrectomy is technically a procedure involving removal of the large part of the stomach that functions as a reservoir. The goal is to reduce the amount of food that can be consumed at a time; however, no intervention is made to the digestive system’s natural mechanism in such a way as to reduce absorption.
Duodenal switch surgery, also known as ‘biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch’, is a surgical procedure that has been performed for a long time. SADI-S (Single Anastomosis Duodeno-Ileal Bypass with Sleeve Gastrectomy) is a more up-to-date and safer version of this highly effective surgical procedure.
Gastric bypass is a very effective and safe procedure to reorganize the digestive system by means of bypass surgeries as long as the operations are done by experienced bariatric surgeons. For eligible candidates, the acquirements of the surgical procedure are many times more than its risks.
Apollo Endoscopic Gastric Plication
Many obese patients cannot lose weight or reject conventional obesity management. Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (the Apollo method) is a pioneering coadjuvant, interventionist technique for the integral management of obesity.
