1. Stomach Balloon
Stomach balloon is one of the methods used in obesity treatment. The extınguished balloon is inserted into the patient’s stomach with gastroscopy and then inflated physically. The amount of serum can be increased or decreased according to the needs of the patient. The placed balloon can move freely in the stomach.
But stomach balloon therapy is not permanent. According to the patient’s need, it can stay for 6-12 months and then removed from the stomach. Because the balloon gives a feeling of satiety and is filling the stomach, the patient cannot eat much.
In this process, with a dietitian and the help of a healthy and balanced diet, the patient will lose weight. The eating habits of the patient are corrected until the balloon is removed and after the balloon is removed, the patient continues to lose weight if he continues to have a healthy and balanced diet.
2. Tube Stomach (Sleeve Gastrectomy)
The greatest advantage of sleeve gastrectomy is that no changes are made to the natural functioning of the digestive system. Obesity-related diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea are reduced by up to 80% with tube stomach cure.
Tube stomach treatment does not change stomach functions, only stomach volume shrinks so that patients can consume any type of food, at least in small quantities.
With this treatment, 75% of the stomach is removed. Therefore a hormone named ghrelin, which triggers the feeling of hunger is noticeably reduced and The feel of hunger of the patient is reduced naturally.
Vitamin and mineral deficiency after tubal stomach surgery is much less than other obesity operations.
3. Mini Gastric Bypass
Mini gastric bypass surgery reduces both gastric volume and the absorption of food. The mini-gastric bypass is very effective in the treatment of hypertension and diabetes.
4. R-Y Gastric Bypass
The difference between R-Y gastric bypass and mini-gastric by-pass is a bile deflector linkage that prevents bile reflux. As the stomach is shrunk, the number of nutrients taken and bypasses reduces the absorption of nutrients. Thus, the patient can lose weight quickly after surgery.
5. Transit Bipartition
Transit bipartition surgery is a metabolic surgical procedure. Metabolic surgery type surgery is applied to people with diseases such as diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, and hypertension.
