Obesity surgery and advanced laparoscopy
in Cali and Bogota.

Gastric bypass is what is considered the gold standard in bariatric surgery, and is currently the most performed procedure in the world for obesity control. Additionally, at this time is also considered as metabolic surgery, with the aim to control diseases like diabetes, sleep apnea or dyslipidemia even in the absence of extreme obesity. Patients with type II diabetes have a very quick response to surgery, even without significant weight loss. Found in them a significant amount of early hormonal changes that facilitate the use of the patient’s main hormone that regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein, controlling quickly, with very little medication, blood glucose levels. It is for this reason that some authors consider this surgery as “Surgical treatment of diabetes.”

Gastric bypass is a surgery that has been practiced for more than thirty years. This means it is proven time and know what to expect of patients after major track.

At its inception, and for many years, this procedure was done openly, through an incision in the upper abdomen. With the evolution of laparoscopic surgery, it became the route of choice for the procedure. The advantages of laparoscopic surgery include smaller incisions, less pain, faster recovery, less incidence of hernias, and fast refund your daily activities, resulting in less disability.

Gastric bypass surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and is considered a mixed surgery: restrictive and malabsorptive. Saying that is restrictive, we mean that it creates a small pouch in the stomach or upper part of the original stomach and connects via a bridge or bypass the intestine. This connection is slightly narrow for food make a longer stay in the stomach, bypassing the intestine, giving a feeling of fullness faster.

The other part is malabsorptive. The bridge that connects the stomach to the small intestine again creates a malabsorption condition contributing to weight loss. By skipping the bridge distal stomach and first part of the intestine is partially lost the ability to absorb certain nutrients and vitamins. This is why it is necessary to administer a permanent substitution of these elements.
