SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS & LONG TERM MANAGEMENT
What is Bariatric Weight Loss
Bariatric surgery refers to any surgical procedure on the stomach or intestines to induce weight loss. Commonly referred to as weight loss surgery, bariatric surgery is one of the few weight loss treatments.
Bariatric weight loss surgery is an option for people who have a body mass index (BMI) above 40. It is also an option for people with a body mass index between 35 and 40 who have health problems like type 2 diabetes or heart disease.
If you are ready to take control and live a longer and healthier life by losing the weight for good, then Kenya Laparoscopic Surgery Services (KLASS) is the right place for you.
Bariatric Weight loss Procedures
OBESITY & BARIATRIC PROGRAM
Treatment of weight loss can be done in a number of ways based on several different factors such as the severity of obesity, past medical problems, and the patient’s personal needs.
A gastric band made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger remainder of the stomach.
This procedure involves dividing the stomach so that it consists of two parts – the majority of the stomach and a small pouch that the surgeon creates.
Laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery is a restrictive procedure that reduces the size of the stomach but does not alter the gastrointestinal tract.
A gastric balloon is a soft balloon that is inserted into your stomach through your mouth using an endoscope, non-surgically.
This procedure configures the intestines so that fewer calories are absorbed, and reduces the capacity of the stomach so that food intake is restricted.
