Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Initial Evaluation

 

Candidates for gastric bypass surgery first undergo a thorough physical examination and health history assessment. This process considers the patient's other health issues related to obesity, weight loss methods previously attempted, and psychological status.

 

 

Pre-Surgery Preparations

 

Depending on the current condition of the patient, a special diet program may be initiated under the guidance of a dietitian. This diet aims to reduce liver fat and minimize risks during surgery. The patient's medications are reviewed, and adjustments are made to any drugs that may interfere with the surgery.

 The patient is informed about the surgery process, risks, and expected outcomes.

 

Surgery Day

 

The surgery is typically performed using a laparoscopic method, which involves small incisions. This allows the patient to heal faster and experience less pain. During the surgery, the stomach is significantly reduced in size, and part of the small intestine is rearranged. This procedure supports weight loss by both reducing the volume of the stomach and limiting nutrient absorption.

 

Post-Surgery Recovery

 

Patients usually stay in the hospital for a few days after the surgery. During this time, their diet gradually transitions from liquids to pureed foods, and then to solid foods. Close monitoring is conducted for pain control and early detection of any complications.

 

Long-Term Follow-Up

 

After gastric bypass surgery, patients are regularly monitored. These follow-ups include managing dietary habits, regulating vitamin and mineral supplements, and providing psychological support. Regular health checks are also performed to monitor weight loss progress and detect any potential complications early.


Gastric bypass is not just a weight loss method; it requires patients to make permanent lifestyle changes. A multidisciplinary approach involving surgeons, dietitians, psychologists, and other health professionals is essential. A patient-centered approach is adopted throughout the pre-surgery, during, and post-surgery phases, ensuring that all necessary support is provided.
