Bariatric Surgery Procedures
Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach receives and intestinal malabsorption and more importantly by bringing neurohormonal changes in the body which causes less hunger and feeling of fullness and satisfaction.
All surgeries by Dr. Sharma are done key-hole way -- either Laparoscopic or Robotic
Key-Hole Surgery also known as Minimal Access Surgery/ Minimal Invasive Surgery, has Minimal Pain and Early Recovery compared to traditional Open surgery.
Robotic surgery has added advantage of precision and fine dissection which ultimately adds to better outcomes.
The most common bariatric surgery procedures are gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch. Each surgery has its unique advantages.
