THE OBESITY CENTER - METABOLIC SURGERY for TYPE 2 DIABETES
Obesity is identified as having an excessive amount of body fat. Obesity isn't just a cosmetic concern. It increases your risk of diseases and health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Our surgeons use only the laparoscopic approach for sleeve gastrectomy surgery because of its many advantages. The procedure enables surgeons to perform many of the same procedures as in traditional, open surgery. The advantages of laparoscopic surgery include less pain and reduced need for pain medication.
Are You a Candidate for Bariatric Surgery?
According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if:
You have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more (about 100 pounds overweight)
You have a BMI between 35 and 39.9 AND a serious obesity-related health problem such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension or severe sleep apnea.
The objective of this method is to decrease stomach volume (about 60-100cc) to enable the feeling of satiety with small amounts of food intake. With this objective, a certain segment of the stomach is removed by surgical procedure, leaving intact a tube-shaped stomach about the size of a banana. The patient feels no hunger as the segment of stomach secreting the hunger hormone is also removed. This operation limits only the amount of food intake: There is no need for the patient to take supplementary vitamin or minerals as food absorption continues in the same way.How is the surgery performed?
Tube gastrectomies also are performed by laparoscopic methods. The operation is done by entering the abdominal cavity through small incisions.
The Post-Operation Period
After surgery, by consuming food in small volumes, the patient feels satisfied easily, this feeling of satiety transforming into a loss of appetite. Total food intake is decreased significantly and within a few years of surgery, 80-90% of the excess weight is lost.
Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery performed at Avcilar Hospital on 200 patients in 2015 successfully.
