Gastric Bypass in Colombia
Gastric bypass surgery enables individuals who have not responded to typical diet and exercise treatments to lose massive amounts of weight. In most cases, patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery are able to lose up to 80% of their excess body weight in one year. Because nearly 95% of weight related health problems, called co-morbidities, include high blood pressure, diabetes, incontinence, and GeRD, many patients find that such conditions have also been alleviated or eradicated as a result of the surgery.
Sleeve Gastrectomy in Colombia
Sleeve gastrectomy procedures are effective and safe for patients with high-risk and high BMI (body mass index) ranges. In many cases, this surgical procedure allows patients to lose 100 pounds or more, which helps to improve health and reduce medical issues that result from obesity, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, as well as lack of mobility and quality of life.
Sleeve gastrectomy procedures enable the stomach to function properly and normally, although it reduces its capacity to hold food. The portion of the stomach that is removed also contains hungers stimulating hormones known as Ghrelin, which helps to reduce food cravings. In many cases, patients experiencing medical conditions as a result of obesity such as diabetes or high cholesterol experience a decrease of symptoms as a result of this type of surgical procedure.
