Treatments & Procedures

The Global Hospitals’ Minimal Access Surgery & Bariatric Surgery Institute brings together a team of highly qualified surgeons to treat a variety of issues with minimal access surgery.

Minimal access surgery has become an increasingly preferred option for the treatment of problems of the abdomen. The availability of laparoscopic technology, which involves the use of a tiny fiber-optic camera, video imaging capabilities, and new energy sources for cutting and coagulation has transformed the practice of surgery. Now, the Institute can offer treatment using minimally invasive approaches for the vast majority of patients with digestive tract diseases and pelvis diseases. These procedures can be performed with one or more small incisions, through which a camera and surgical instruments are inserted, instead of a large incision. For patients, these procedures result in less pain, shorter hospital stays, more rapid recoveries for patients, and fewer effects on pulmonary and immune system function, compared with open surgery.

The advantages of Minimal Access Surgery are:

  • Less pain
  • Fewer complications
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Shorter recovery
  • Quicker ambulation
  • Quicker resumption of diet
  • Quicker return to normal activity
  • Quicker return to home
  • Superior cosmetic result

Of the bariatric surgeries done at Global Hospitals, many are performed laparoscopically.

The different kinds of bariatric surgeries, including laparoscopic bariatric surgeries, are:

Sleeve Gastroectomy – A surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a portion of the stomach. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach. The procedure is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.
Roun-en-y Gastric Bypass - In this procedure, the stomach is made smaller by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach using surgical staples or a plastic band.

D.J Bypass – These includes Sleeve Gastroectomy and joining duodenum to 1st part of the small intestine through surgical steps.

Biliopancreatic Diversions - A biliopancreatic diversion changes the normal process of digestion by making the stomach smaller.

Single-port Bariatric Surgery – It is a recently developed technique in laparoscopic surgery. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where the surgeon operates through a single entry point, typically the patient’s navel.

Gastric Banding – It is a restrictive type of weight loss surgery. Briefly, it involves placing a silicone band with an inflatable inner collar around the upper stomach to restrict food intake.

Metabolic Surgery for Type 2 Diabetes - The route of small intestine is altered. Part of it is shifted to a different place for better control of diabetes.

Obesity Clinic: The obesity clinic has packages to help patients lose weight, maintain weight, and prevent further weight gain.

Diet Counseling: Nutritionist, at the institute, offer complete health package with a detail on nutritional needs tailored to match each patient’s needs.
