Obesity MLGObesity MLGDon’t focus on your weight but on feeling great

Obesity is a severe chronic disease with a multi-disciplinary focus. The purpose of the Obesity Integral Unit is to control excess weight and bring it down to a healthy level while keeping its associated comorbidities (high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol, sleep apnoea, bone and joint problems, etc.) under control, thus improving life expectancy, quality of life and subsequently, physical appearance.

Techniques

Bariatric Surgery

  • Sleeve gastrectomy: This is a restrictive technique whereby most of the stomach is removed. The resulting reduction of the stomach causes a feeling of being full and therefore regulates hunger.
  • Gastric bypass surgery: This is a combined technique which involves a reduction of the stomach and the placement of a bowel bypass to help reduce fat absorption. This leads to the reduction of the stomach capacity at the same time as reducing the absorption of fat.

The digestive tract and endoscopic techniques

  • Apollo Method: It consists of applying small sutures on the inside of the stomach thus reducing its volume. The patient reduces food intake and feels less hungry.
  • Intra-gastric balloon: This balloon is inserted in your stomach by endoscopic means where it will remain for a maximum of six months, occupying a certain amount of space and causing a feeling of being full.

Metabolic surgery to end diabetes

It has been proven that following obesity surgery many diabetic patients improve the sugar levels in their blood, even patients without severe obesity.
