Bariatric surgery Delhi -Why is it Life Saviour

Bariatric surgery Delhi has  been found to be effective in people who are morbidly obese. Last year, reports confirmed that Bariatric surgery Delhi gave positive results in people who had reached fatal-level of obesity. Obesity is one of the most prevalent problems in the world, and also one of the most ignored ones. However, no matter how much you defend obesity as "just being healthy", the fact remains that obesity is fatal. But losing weight is no easy task, either. While few people have the conviction to follow rigorous diets and exercise routines, many opt for a far more convenient option: surgery. The most common and effective surgery or losing weight is inarguably Bariatric surgery Delhi.

What is Bariatric surgery ?

On the face value, Bariatric surgery Delhi can be understood as a weight loss surgery. It is a range of procedures performed over the stomach to affect the food and calorie intake of a person. A history of successful results has made Bariatric surgery Delhi almost synonymous to weight loss surgery.

Types of Bariatric surgery Delhi

We must keep in mind that "Bariatric surgery Delhi" is actually an umbrella term for various surgeries that aim to reduce the size of the stomach. Broadly, they could be categories as restrictive (simply restricting the amount of food you can eat) and malabsorptive (affective the minerals and calories you absorb rom the food). Some of the common procedures that fall under this category are: 1) Gastric sleeve The most popular bariatric surgical procedure, gastric sleeve permanently reduces the size of stomach by removing a large portion of it. The stomach size is reduced by about 15% and is made into tubular shape. It is, however, irreversible. It makes you feel less hungry and feel full sooner. 2) Gastric bypass Similar to gastric sleeve, gastric bypass procedure simply cuts away a … Continue Reading ››

Laparoscopic Hernia Treatment

WHAT IS HERNIA

Laparoscopic Hernia is  a way of treating Hernia with least risk. A hernia is the protrusion of a viscus or part of it through an abnormal opening in the wall by which it is normally contained.

CLASSIFICATION OF HERNIA

Hernias can be broadly classified as internal or external. External hernias can occur spontaneously as a result of congenital defect or following any surgical intervention when they are called incisional hernias. Depending upon the site of external hernia they are classified as
  • Inguinal hernia which can be indirect or direct
  • Femoral hernia
  • Spigelian hernia
  • Lumbar hernia
  • Obturator hernia
  • Perineal hernias
  • Umbilical hernia
  • Epigastric hernia Approximately 75% of all hernias are inguinal; of these, 50% are indirect (male-to-female ratio, 7:1), with a right-side predominance, and 25% are direct. About 10% of hernias are incisional or ventral
Laparoscopic Hernia

ETIOLOGY OF HERNIA:

  • The etiology of most hernias can be explained on the basis of congenital defect in the body wall. However, any condition that increases the pressure in the intra-abdominal cavity may contribute to the formation of a hernia which includes the following:
  • Only 3-5% of hernias are femoral
  • About 14% of hernias are umbilical
  • Internal hernias mostly occur after abdominal surgical intervention.
  • Marked obesity
  • Heavy lifting
  • Coughing
  • Straining with defecation or urination
  • Ascites
  • Peritoneal dialysis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)  
 

PRESENTATION OF HERNIA:

The typical presentation of an asymptomatic hernia is as follows:
  • Swelling or fullness at the hernial site with aching or dragging sensation
  • Enlargement of the swelling with increasing intra-abdominal pressure which can result from coughing or straining.
 

LAPAROSCOPIC HERNIA TREATMENT:

Surgery is the only definitive treatment for the management of hernia and it is mandatory in almost all hernias because of complications which can happen in any case of untreated hernia. Hernia surgery can be done by Open … Continue Reading ››
