Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG)

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) in Mangalore

This surgical weight-loss procedure is recommended to people who are not able to reduce their weight via conventional methods like dieting and regularly exercising. 

It involves using robot-assisted procedure/laparoscopy to make several tiny incisions on the patient’s abdomen. This procedure helps doctors remove as much as 75% of the patient’s stomach, thereby making it look like a ‘sleeve’. In addition, this procedure also enables the removal of a part of the intestines, which helps the patient reduce their food intake by limiting the release of ghrelin (the hunger hormone). The conversion of the stomach into a small pouch reduces its capacity to store large amounts of food. Visit Manipal Hospitals to know more about Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) in Mangalore.

Hence, by restricting the food intake of the patient, the procedure mitigates the risk of obesity-associated diseases, such as diabetes, sleep apnoea and hypertension. It is a very safe procedure with a few common side effects, such as bleeding or infection at the site of infection. 

This procedure helps doctors:

  • Get a better, clearer and more magnified vision with a sharp and crisp 3D view

  • Make fewer incisions, which leads to fewer scars and enables quicker recovery

Revision Bariatric Surgery

This procedure is usually recommended for altering, repairing or modifying a previously performed but unsuccessful weight-loss procedure. It has become popular over the last few years mainly because of the various unsatisfactory outcomes such as uncontrolled weight loss, chronic diarrhoea and nutrient malabsorption, of a previous weight-loss surgery.

This procedure is usually planned after taking into consideration the type of surgery that has already been performed. For example, some revision bariatric procedures result in the slipping off or expansion of the adjustable silicone ring, which might have been placed around the stomach of the patient during laparoscopic gastric banding for reducing food intake. A sleeve gastrectomy is recommended in such cases.
