New Methods Are Successful In Treating Obesity

From Emsey Hospital General Surgeon Professor Umut Barbaros told about new methods in obesity treatment.

“Today obesity surgery or otherwise known as bariatric surgery can be performed successfully. The success rate of diet and other similar treatment methods in extremely overweight people is not more than 1-2%. That is why surgery is the most successful method for such patients.

Some methods include:

  • Adjustable stomach clamp
  • Sleeve gastrectomy
  • Gastric By-pass (Roux-N-Y)
  • Conventional Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPD) operation.

All surgeries are performed laparoscopically and require about 3 days in hospital. Obesity treatment, which is one of the most effective operations in permanent weight control, is performed for patients with life threatening weight problems that have failed to lose weight with dieting. Obesity treatment plays a positive role in social life giving patients the opportunity for a new chapter in their life.”
