About Metabolic Surgery

Metabolic-Surgery

Over the past few decades, there has been a significant change in our lifestyle. Instead of following healthy diet which includes leafy vegetables and fruits, more and more people are drawn towards junk foods that ultimately leads to metabolic syndrome which includes diseases like diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and hypertension. In the past, there were very few treatments for these diseases which were effective but now with the advancement in medical science, Dr Castaneda has improved the lives of over 5000 patients through weight loss surgery procedures.

Metabolic surgery gathers a series of procedures which includes bypassing sections or reducing the portions of stomach and small intestine. They are commonly used for the treatment of obesity, diabetes, glycemic control. Up to 70% of the extra weight can also be reduced with bariatric surgery. There are different methods of metabolic surgery namely LBPD Scopinaro, LBPD-DS, LBRYGB, LBSG, LCRYGB and LCSG. The procedure of these methods are explained below.

LBPD Scopinaro (Laparoscopic Biliopancreatic Diversion by Scopinaro)

In this procedure, minimally invasive surgery is used. This procedure reduces the capability of intestinal tract to absorb nutrients and also effects the food intake. Capability of intestinal tract to absorb nutrients is reduced because a part of the intestine is bypassed and cannot be used. Processing of food is so fast that there is very little time for the nutrients to be absorbed. After this BPD, the stomach volume is around 250 to 500 ml and the intestinal tract left is 50 cm approximately. This process reduces the stomach size by surgical horizontal stapling.

Pros: This is very successful and is for patients who eats more and lead a stressful life.
Cons: After surgery, patients may suffer from Diarrhea, Flatulence, malabsoption.

LBPD-DS (Laparoscopic Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch)

In duodenal switch surgery minimally invasive surgery is also used. This procedure reduces the capability of intestinal tract to absorb nutrients and also effects the food intake. Capability of intestinal tract to absorb nutrients is reduced because a part of the intestine is bypassed and cannot be used. Processing of food is so fast that there is less time for the nutrients to be absorbed. After this BPD, the stomach volume is around 150 to 250 ml and the intestinal tract is 75-100 cm long. This process reduces the stomach size by surgical vertical stapling.

Pros: This is very successful and designed for patients who eat more and lead a stressful life.
Cons: Mortality rate can be up to 1 to 2 percent and patients may have to depend on lifelong minerals and vitamins.

LBRYGB (Laparoscopic Banded Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass)

Minimally invasive surgery is used for gastric bypass surgery. This procedure reduces the capability of intestinal tract to absorb nutrients and also effects the food intake. Capability of intestinal tract to absorb nutrients is reduced because a part of the intestine is bypassed and cannot be used. After this surgery, the stomach pouch volume is around 15 to 25 ml. This process reduces the stomach size by surgical stapling and leaves the size of the stomach as small as a walnut.

Pros: This is very successful and patients will not face the dumping syndrome.
Cons: This procedure is irreversible.

LBSG (Laparoscopic Banded Sleeve Gastrectomy)

Gastric banding can make use of minimally invasive surgery. The amount of the food intake is reduced considerably as the size of the stomach pouch is only 10 percent left . After eating very small quantity, patients feel their stomachs full. After this surgery, the stomach pouch volume is around 80 to 120 ml. The left side of the patients is removed by cutting and then stapling.

Pros: It includes very low complications rate.
Cons: There is a possible chance of regaining the weight after 3-4 years.

LCSG (Laparoscopic Conventional Sleeve Gastrectomy)

Gastrectomy sleeve surgery can be performed with the use of mini-invasive surgery as well. The amount of the food intake is reduced considerably as the size of the stomach pouch is only 10% left . After eating very small quantities, patients feel their stomachs full. After this surgery, the stomach pouch volume is around 80 to 120 ml. The left side of the patients is removed by cutting and then stapling.

Pros: In this procedure, the part of the stomach producing the hormone ghrelin is removed which is known to stimulate hunger.
Cons: There is a possibility of regaining the weight after 3 to 4 years of surgery.
