n the fight against obesity, minimally invasive bariatric surgery involves reshaping the digestive tract in order to either decrease food intake or increase the rate of digestion. Minimally invasive bariatric surgery is a subset of laparoscopic surgery, as opposed to the more conventional “open” bariatric surgery that involves big incisions. In order to accomplish treatments, minimally invasive bariatric surgery makes use of a tiny fiber-optic tube (laparoscope) linked to a video camera, which is placed through small incisions. A shorter healing period reduced scarring, and less overall bodily shock might result from this.

A variety of bariatric surgical procedures are available at Kaizen Hospital, and we take great pride in the fact that we use minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques. The use of tiny incisions and specialized instruments allows minimally invasive surgery to treat a wide range of medical issues. Along with reducing scarring, surgery, and recuperation, times can be shortened and the danger of physical damage can be decreased with these techniques.

Small incisions rather than larger ones are what are referred to as “minimally invasive surgery” in the surgical field. To examine the target location, a tiny camera and light are guided through these incisions, which are usually barely a few millimeters long. Procedures requiring specialized instruments are then carried out.

Descriptions and online resources for all of our minimally invasive bariatric procedures are provided here.

Sleeve Gastrectomy: Reducing food consumption is the goal of sleeve gastrectomy, a surgical procedure that involves the removal of about 80% of the stomach. A banana-shaped tubular pouch, or “sleeve,” makes up the rest of the stomach.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: This procedure streamlines digestion by cutting a new channel from the upper part of the stomach all the way to the end of the small intestine, effectively “bypassing” a significant section of both organs.

Gastric Band: An inflatable band is placed around the top part of the stomach during adjustable gastric banding surgery. The majority of people report feeling full quite fast after this.

SADI-S: The problem of obesity can be fixed with a procedure called SADI-S, which stands for Single Anastomosis Duodeno-Ileal Bypass with Sleeve Gastrectomy. When it comes to metabolic surgery and weight loss, the DS is unrivaled. The SADI-S is an effort to streamline the process. A small intestine loop is joined to the duodenum rather than the usual Y connection, which increases the risk of internal hernias.

Revisional bariatric surgery: Laparoscopic procedures can frequently undo the effects of many of the aforementioned bariatric procedures.
