Obesity is a common problem faced by a lot of people. A sedentary lifestyle and excessive amounts of fatty food are the root causes of obesity. An excessive amount of weight will affect the quality of your life. It may trigger other health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid, and heart problems.

Endoscopic Bariatric Surgery is a surgery done at Apollo Spectra, Kanpur, to reduce your weight. This surgery is recommended for those who have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30 or above and have tried to lose weight by other methods but failed.

How is Endoscopic Bariatric Surgery performed?

Endoscopic suturing is used in this surgery to reduce the size of your stomach.

At Apollo Spectra, Kanpur, endoscopic bariatric surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. During the surgical procedure, your surgeon will insert an endoscope fixed with a camera and an endoscopic suturing device down your throat, into the stomach. This will allow your surgeon to see inside your stomach and operate. An incision in the abdomen is not made during this surgery.

After inserting the endoscope down your throat into the stomach, your doctor will place 12 sutures in your stomach. These sutures will help to change the structure of your abdomen. The sutures shape your stomach like a tube. This tube-shaped stomach will reduce the calorie intake in your body. It will also limit the amount of food you consume.

This surgical procedure usually takes about 90 minutes. After the surgery, you will not be allowed to eat for 7 or 8 hours. After 8 hours of the surgery, your doctor will recommend you to follow a liquid diet for a week. After two weeks, you will be allowed to have solid food.
