Most non-surgical weight loss programs are based on a combination of diet, behavior modification, and
regular exercise. However, published scientific papers report that these methods do not help resolve morbid
obesity because they fail to help people maintain weight loss. In fact, more than 95% of people regain the
weight they lose within a few years after treatment.
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass By Dr Pradeep Jain –
This procedure reduces the size of the stomach thus reducing the amount of food one can eat at a time. It also
alters the digestion by absorbing less of the food eaten. It causes intolerance to food that has concentrated
sugars. Average hospital stay is two nights and average weight loss is 85% of excess body weight.
Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding By Dr Pradeep Jain In this procedure, a soft band lined with an adjustable balloon on the inside is placed around the stomach so
that it takes the shaped of an hour glass. It reduces hunger and restricts the amount of food that one can eat
at a time, thus helping to lose weight. Success of this procedure depends on proper adjustment of the balloon
and restricting high calorie liquids. The average hospital stay in one night and the average weight loss is 5560% of excess body weight.
The results of bariatric surgery are great. The average weight loss is 55% to 85% depending on the
procedure. There is an improvement or remission of diabetes in over 90%, high blood pressure in over 80%,
sleep apnea in over 75%, and significant reduction in the rates of heart attack, stroke and cancer .
