All Medical Procedures

It is dual restrictive innovative technique which involves gastric greater curvature placation or infolding of the stomach to form a gastric sleeve followed by placement of an adjustable gastric band in the upper part of the stomach.

In this procedure, the size of the stomach is halved to limit the amount of food a person can eat at any one time. This is achieved by folding the stomach wall inward and suturing it (No cutting, no stapling) in 2 layers using  Dr. C.K. Huang’s Gastric plication formula.

It is also known as single anastomosis gastric bypass, in which a long gastric sleeve is created along the lesser curvature and is directly attached to the small intestine after bypassing 150-200 cm of proximal jejunum. It is a simple, safe, rapid and powerful bariatric operation.

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is a reversible weight loss procedure. It involves creation of a small, 30 cc pouch from the upper stomach, accompanied by bypass of the remaining stomach. This reduces your appetite and makes you feel satiated with smaller portions. Then the small intestine is divided 60 cm from ligament of Treitz and a Biliopancreatic limb is created. A Roux limb is created using 100cm of small intestine. Reconstruction of GI tract is done to form a Roux-en-Y anastomosis.

This procedure involves surgery on the stomach only and does not involve the intestine. In this procedure, the stomach is reduced permanently to about 20% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature. The result is a sleeve or banana like structure. The newer smaller stomach restricts food intake by allowing only a small amount of food to be consumed in a single sitting. It provides quicker satiety (sense of fullness) and decreased appetite because of removal of fundus that produces hunger hormone Ghrelin.

It is a new procedure to treat obesity and type 2 diabetes. In this procedure first laparoscopic sleeve Gastrectomy is done. After that jejunum (a part of small intestine) is divided 50 cm from the ligament of treitz. 200-300cm of proximal jejunum is bypassed and end to side jejunojejunostomy is done.

Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) or Zero scar bariatric surgery is an advanced, minimally invasive (keyhole) procedure in which the surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient’s umbilicus (navel). Special articulating instruments and access ports are used to enter into the abdomen.

At our centre, SILS is commonly used for:

  • Cholecystectomy
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
