What are Tube Stomach Surgeries?

It is very important to perform the correct sleeve gastrectomy surgery for the person to lose weight successfully and effectively. This decision is made in the light of the examinations and tests performed on the patient. In this respect, Op. Dr. Güven Görkem primarily performs the examination of the patient. Warn patients about health, Dr. Görkem warns to stay away from clinics, especially under the stairs.

1. Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (Tube Stomach Operation)

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, popularly known as sleeve gastrectomy, aims to remove approximately 80% of the stomach. With this decrease in the volume of the stomach, satiety is achieved with much less portions.

Eating fewer portions means less calorie intake. Thanks to this approach, it seems that the person loses weight quickly. Gastric sleeve surgery, a method that has been used for many years and proven to be effective, allows patients to lose weight within 2 years. While the weight loss process takes place very quickly in the first months, it happens more slowly in the following processes. In this respect, the patient needs to follow the diet and exercise plan with determination and patience.

Kiss. Dr. Trust Gorkem Gastric sleeve surgeries performed by Dr. and his team are performed with the closed surgery method. In this way, it is aimed that the person recovers much faster. Since there are no large incisions, the patient returns quickly in his social life.

2. Gastric Bypass Surgery (Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass)

In addition to stomach reduction, this method includes bypassing the large stomach and duodenum. The food consumed by the person reaches the small intestine directly from the small stomach. Foods that pass through the large stomach and duodenum are digested much faster.

Compared to simple sleeve gastrectomy surgery, two different effects occur;

  1. With the shrinking of the stomach, satiety is reached with much less portions.
  2. In addition to the first effect, it has a direct effect on the hormones that govern the feeling of hunger.

It is a very effective method for those with type 2 diabetes.

3. Biliopancreatic Lead (Duodenal Switch)

In this method, a very large bypass operation is applied. In addition to a small stomach formed, nutrients are sent directly to the middle of the small intestine. Foods that skip a large part of the small intestine are absorbed much less in this way. Thanks to its less absorption, the calories taken from food are also reduced automatically.

It is a method in which two different effects are seen simultaneously. The shrinking stomach makes it possible to reach satiety with fewer portions. By skipping a large part of the intestine, less calorie intake is provided. It is a very effective method.

4. Biliopancreatic Diversion

After part of the stomach is removed, the remaining part is attached to the end of the small intestine. It is rarely preferred due to the high risk of complications.
