Obesity Surgery

Obesity Surgery

Overview

Obesity is clinically significant form of advanced overweight. The measure called Body Mass Index is calculated by the proportion of patient height and weight in conclusion of some measurements and examinations. The result of these measurements should be between 20 and 25 in a healthy person. Values between 25 and 30 are defined as Overweight, and people in this range are primarily recommended diet and exercise. People with a Body Mass Index over 30 are defined as Obese, and when the BMI goes over 35 the person is defined as Morbidly Obese. In addition to these index values the fat and muscle mass of the body are also measures in order to determine the target weight and the appropriate surgical option is recommended to the patient by the physician.

In comparison to people with normal weight, obese people display a propensity for many disorders, including particularly diabetes, and generally high blood pressure, heart attack, heart failure, sleep disorders, sleep apnoea, shortness of breath, acid reflux, depression, menstrual irregularity, infertility, joint disorders, gallbladder stones, brain disorders, breast and prostate cancers, other types of cancer and high cholesterol.

Today, laparoscopic (closed) surgery has become integral to obesity surgery. In this regard Mesteuropa has conducted meticulous research for the benefit of you, our clients, to determine the best surgeons who utilise state of the art equipment and techniques. We can assure you with peace of mind that we collaborate with Surgeons and A Class JCI approved hospitals in Turkey who provide high quality services and possess deep experience in their field.

Obesity surgeries can be classified under 2 groups. Examples of the First Group include stomach reduction by Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (Tube Stomach) or SADI-S (Loop Duodonel Switch). The Second Group consist of intervention which reduce absorption of food and increase the speed of its passage, like Gastric Bypass.
