Obesity is becoming a major source of concern in today’s world. The lifestyle and environmental changes contribute to its growth among the people. With diets and exercises unable to manage the enormity of the situation bariatric surgery is gaining popularity in Bangalore.

Obesity is condition of excessive weight gain when the Body Mass Index (BMI) exceeds 30.

Medical treatments for obesity ranges from medications and diet to surgical procedures like the popular bariatric surgery.
Laparoscopic Gastric Banding
A popular laparoscopic procedure, it involves the banding of stomach to reduce its volume thereby reducing the amount of food that can be consumed. Performed by surgeons, by administering general anaesthesia, a silicon band is used for the binding procedure. This treatment method ensures about 50% weight loss within a year of the surgery. A follow up of diet and exercise is needed to ensure its everlasting effect.
This is yet another laparoscopic procedure aimed at reducing the utilization of consumed food. To be more precise, this procedure limits the calories absorbed by by-passing a portion of the stomach as well as the small intestine. The by-passing is done by binding a portion of stomach. In the case of intestine, the length is reduced by cutting it and connecting the cut part to the reduced stomach. This ensures limited absorption of food. The patients are administered calcium and vitamins externally to avoid deficiencies.
