1- Tube Stomach Surgery Is At Its Peak

Florya Medicalpark Hospital and head of department General Surgery Specialist Professor Doctor, “Tube stomach surgery, in which the stomach is reduced by about 80% and turned into a thin long tube, is a type of obesity surgery performed to restrict nutrient intake. This surgery, which has been proven to be a long-term success, offers a great opportunity for patients to lose weight quickly. Gastric sleeve surgery, in which the risk of complications is reduced when performed by experienced surgeons, leads to patients getting full faster by eating less and even reducing their appetite.” was said.

The main reason for this is that hormone releases that control the feeling of hunger occur in the removed excess part of the stomach. All these advantages make tube stomach surgery the most preferred and applied type of obesity surgery.

2- Gastric Bypass Surgery is the Partner of the Summit

Since not only the stomach volume is restricted by tube stomach surgery, but some patients also need to reduce their nutrient absorptiont, “Thanks to Gastric Bypass surgery in Istanbul, we not only reduce the stomach volume, but also make it possible for our patients to consume fewer calories from the nutrients they consume. During this operation, also known as gastric bypass surgery, we create a small pouch at the top of the stomach and remove the rest of the stomach from the digestive process.

Then we directly connect the small intestines with the new stomach we have created. Since we make these anatomical changes by shortening the absorption part of the small intestine, we also reduce the nutrient absorption of our patients. We can get fast and effective results thanks to gastric bypass surgery, which we prefer to apply especially to patients with diabetes 2 disease,” he explained.

3- Gastric Balloon Offers Comfort to Obesity Patients

He said that patients who cannot lose their excess weight do not always have the appropriate health conditions for surgery, or when patients may not want to evaluate surgical options, the gastric balloon application provides great comfort in this patient group. “Although the gastric balloon application is considered among the types of obesity surgery, it is not a surgical procedure by its nature. It is performed by endoscopy method and in order for it to be performed differently from obesity surgeries, it is sufficient that the patients’ body mass index values are 25 and above. Balloons placed in the stomach restrict the volume of the stomach and allow patients to quickly reach a feeling of fullness. Depending on the type of balloon selected, patients can have the balloon removed after 6 months or 12 months. The absence of surgical complications after gastric balloon and the rapid weight loss of patients if they are careful increases the frequency of preference for this application, he stressed that the ability to lose weight after bariatric surgery is directly proportional to the patient’s determination.
