Bariatric Surgery & Care

  • Springfield Wellness Centre

Bariatric is a Greek derived word where “bar” means “weight and “iatr” means treatment. Essentially it is the treatment of obesity. Obesity has been receiving a lot of focus these days from the medical fraternity because it is said to be the single most reason to cause 40 other diseases.

Human body does respond to proper diet and work out. However morbidly obese persons who have a BMI of more than 40 and severely obese person with a BMI of more than 35 and have developed complexities like Type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension) and other co-morbid conditions have diet constraints and also they may not be in a position to do recommended work outs for weight loss in the initial stages because of their condition. Hence they are highly recommended to go in for a Bariatric surgery to bring their weight under control and bring some respite to the co-morbid conditions like Type-2 diabetes, they have developed.

It has to be borne in mind that Bariatric Surgery is not a cosmetic surgery like liposuction. While in liposuction the shape of the body is changed and one gets a temporary shape, it also needs to be kept in mind that the weight of the patient never reduces and also the co-morbid conditions is not cured because the fat deposits are sucked out of the targeted region.

Bariatric Surgery on the other hand acts on the co-morbid conditions like Type-2 diabetes, cures certain diseases associated with obesity, brings back lost health, reduces psychological stress and depression in the patients and definitely brings back the smile on their face and wellness.

In a nutshell, after liposuction a patient looks healthy while after a bariatric surgery, the patient begins to feel healthy.

Bariatric Surgery Types

Essentially all Bariatric Surgeries fall into either of the two categories, namely, “Restrictive” or “Malabsorption”. But there are a variety of surgery types performed under these 2 broad categories and evidently the surgeon studies the individual medical history and the ailments before arriving at which type of surgery to perform.
