All of our patients coming to our obesity clinic go through a detailed medical examination before all else. Correct surgical method is determined after the checks of body mass index, psychological state, habits, and all necessary values and consultations of our physicians. The aim of the detailed preliminary examination of us is to bring all risks, which may occur in the pre-operation stage, into minimum level.
Sleeve Gastrectomy (Laparoscopic)
The Sleeve Gastrectomy is one of the operations that is applied prevalently in the obesity surgery and restricting the eating. At this method, no mineral and vitamin supplements are required in the patients undergoing an operation since the fact that no problem for the absorption of foods exists. The objective, aimed to be achieve by this operation, is to shrink the volume of stomach and by doing so, to make the patient have the feeling of fullness with very little amount of foods.
For this purpose, a certain section of the stomach is taken out and a stomach in the form of a tube is left behind. No open surgery technique is applied in this operation and the operation is carried out by a laparoscopic or robotic surgery method, and therefore, the recovery process is shortened in an actual manner.
This is a type of operation where the food absorption and food intake is reduced. A great proportion of the stomach is bypassed in the gastric bypass operations and a stomach part with small volume is prepared and it is attached to the intestines.
Notwithstanding that the volume of the stomach is made smaller by this operation, some parts of the intestines are deactivated and by doing so, it is aimed to discharge some of the food, consumed there under, without being absorbed. In conclusion, it becomes possible for the person to have the feeling of fullness and only a part of the foods so taken is absorbed.
Gastric (Stomach) Balloon
At the gastric balloon method, an empty balloon is placed within the stomach through the endoscopy method. Subsequently, the food intake capacity of the stomach is reduced by the balloon being swelled by gas or liquid and thereby, the person concerned starts to lose weight healthily in a short period of time.
The gastric balloon application is applied in the treatments of our patients, who have their body mass index of 25 and over, and desire to lose weight without any surgical operation, and fail to lose the weight, which have to be lost, in advance of a surgical operation or through a diet.
Since the fact that the gastric balloon is not a surgical operation, our patients are discharged after this process and can return to your daily life. The most important difference of the gastric balloon application in comparison with other methods is the removal of the balloon, placed within the stomach, after a certain period of time (6 months to 12 months). You will be able to protect your weight since the fact that desired weight will be reached and eating habit be acquired.
