India is fast turning into a global health destination for weight loss surgery
Bariatric Surgery in India
Most medical professionals consider obesity as a disease. This is because it directly encounters your self-esteem and makes you unhappy. You tend to be psychologically weak. Most doctors blame unhealthy food habits and sedentary lifestyles to be its root cause.
The healthcare service of the world has risen by leaps and bound today. We have better access to any medical emergency compared to the past. Due to the heavy impact of social media and internet obesity surgery is no longer confined to a small section of people. In spite of the need, most people do not opt for one because of the high cost. Moreover not many people would like to spend their entire life’s saving on a bariatric surgery.
In such a scenario, quality health care services in India play the pipe. India is generally associated with its rich royal heritage, mythology and the Bollywood industry. But this is not it. The country is also emerging as a global health destination. The health care services, the best hospitals and low cost is the reason behind the rise.
Different types of Bariatric or Weight Loss Surgery in India
India is fast growing as a medical hub in the field of bariatric or weight loss surgery. The country is full of reliable experts in this field. So, if you are suffering from this issue, India is a good option to consider.
There are three types of bariatric surgeries conducted in India viz.
- Sleeve gastrectomy
- Gastric bypass
- Lap band
Sleeve gastrectomy is one of the most conducted weight loss surgery procedure by patients. You lose almost 80% of your body weight in less than 2 years by following proper dietary and other instructions. Ghrelin is the hunger-stimulating hormone produced by the stomach. Sleeve gastrectomy divides your stomach vertically and removes almost 85% of the stomach region that produces this hormone. As a result, the amount of food ingested is controlled. Also the normal functioning of stomach is not hampered.
Cost of sleeve gastrectomy in India: 3,600 GBP / 5500 USD / 4320 EUROS (with 7-8 days stay).
Gastric bypass surgeries are for those with BMI above 40. What happens in this procedure is the surgery separates the small upper part (pouch) from the large lower region of the stomach. They then connect the pouch to a small region of small intestine (the jejunum). The outcome is quite satisfactory. You lose almost 80% of your body weight in less than 2 years by following proper dietary and other instructions. The surgery makes you feel full in a lesser time and also prevents the absorption of calories by the small intestine.
Cost of Gastric Bypass surgery in India: 4500 GBP / 7000 USD / 5500 EUROS (with 8-10 days stay).
In Lap band surgery your food intake capacity is reduced by restricting the capacity of your stomach. A small incision is made in the stomach. A lap band is then fitted in the upper stomach. This surgery does not take much time, 2-3 hours maximum. But, this procedure is no longer considered by many because of the troubles like constant of band, repeated visit to the surgeon etc. associated with it. It adds to additional costs.
Cost of Lap band surgery in India: 3,600 GBP / 6000 USD / 4710 EUROS (with 7-8 days stay).
