Facilities & Services

At Manipal Hospital Salt Lake, we perform different types of bariatric procedures depending on the patient’s disease profile for best results. These bariatric & metabolic procedures include:

  1. Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy: This procedure is aimed at removing a significant portion of the stomach to reduce the size of the stomach (sometimes by as much as 15%). The stomach then looks like a sleeve or a tube. This is followed by attaching the open ends of the stomach through surgical staples or sutures.

  2. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: This procedure involves the creation of a small pouch of the stomach with a stapler. The pouch is directly connected to the small intestine, thus completely bypassing the remaining part of the stomach. Book an appointment to know more about Weight Loss Treatment in Kolkata.

  3. Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass: During this procedure, a long gastric tube is created, which is then connected to a small bowel via the single anastomosis. This procedure is also called one or single-anastomosis gastric bypass (SAGB). 

  4. Revision Bariatric Surgery: This surgery is recommended to correct or repair the problems that are generally associated with the previous bariatric procedure. 

  5. Duodeno-jejunal bypass: This procedure involves performing a sleeve gastrectomy as described above along with bypassing a length of small intestine.
