Danny Ward, a UK patient, underwent gastric bypass in India at Mumbai. Danny was obese and was prone to many severe obesity associated complications. His doctor suggested him to undergo gastric bypass surgery but due to delay in the medical procedures and high cost treatment, he wanted to pursue some cheaper substitute along with fine medical care. After comprehensive studies he came to India for his gastric bypass surgery through a medical tourism consultant. The facilities he got at the obesity surgery clinic of Mumbai were at par with the global standards and all the doctors and the medical staff were very courteous. After the surgery, Danny started loosing weight very early and within few months he lost almost 65% of his total body weight. Gastric Bypass in India at Mumbai is conducted under the supervision of highly experienced obesity surgeons.
Gastric bypass is done to treat morbid obesity. A gastric bypass first divides the stomach into a small upper pouch and a much larger, lower "remnant" pouch and then re-arranges the small intestine to allow both pouches to stay connected to it. The surgery is performed using several small incisions, or ports, one of which conveys a surgical telescope connected to a video camera, and others permit access of specialized operating instruments. The surgeon actually views his operation on a video screen. The method is also called limited access surgery, reflecting both the limitation on handling and feeling tissues, and also the limited resolution and two-dimensionality of the video image. With experience, a skilled laparoscopic surgeon can perform most procedures as expeditiously as with an open incision — with the option of using an incision should the need arise.
