Bariatric surgery

Bariatric surgery is recommended for obese people whose BMI is greater than 40. Weight loss through bariatric surgery is achieved through reducing the size of the stomach with the use of a gastric band or removal of a portion of the stomach or by re-routing the small intestine to a small section in the upper stomach creating a pouch. Bariatric surgery is categorized into 3 categories based on the requirements of the surgery-: blocking, restricting, and mixed procedures. Blocking procedures include Biliopancreatic diversion, Endoluminal sleeve and Jejunoileal bypass. Restrictive procedures include Adjustable gastric band, Intragastric balloon, Sleeve gastrectomy, Stomach folding and Vertical banded gastroplasty. While, mixed procedures include Gastric bypass surgery, Implantable gastric stimulation and Sleeve gastrectomy with duodenal switch. As with any surgery, even bariatric surgery has its own set of risks. Deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in the lower leg) or pulmonary embolism (clots in lungs), post-surgical infections, slipping of gastric band, a gut leak, or a blocked gut, gall stones, and excessive malnutrition are the common side effects of a bariatric surgery. But in rare cases, viz., due to unexplained complications, there are risks of patient dying as well.
