Different Procedures Offered by DHI:
Bariatric Surgery is the collective term for different types of weight-loss surgeries. At Digestive Health Institute, we perform all types of primary and redo bariatric procedures such as Laparoscopic Banded Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, Laparoscopic Duodenojejunal Bypass, Laparoscopic Single Anastomosis Duodeno-Ileal Bypass (SADI) and Mini Gastric Bypass.
Who is an ideal candidate for bariatric surgery?
According to a paper published by the Asian Consensus Meeting on Metabolic Surgery, which was spearheaded by DHI’s Dr. Muffi, bariatric surgery is an option for those who have a BMI of above 30 kg/m2 with other conditions, diabetes, sleep apnea, cholesterol, heart diseases, blood pressure, or above 35 kg/m2 without other conditions.
Laparoscopic Surgeries are performed with cutting-edge technology and ensure a quicker recovery time. They leave minimal scars, which keeps the procedure relatively pain-free.
Scope of Laparoscopic Surgery:
Almost all abdominal surgeries can be conducted using laparoscopic techniques. These include common surgeries such as appendectomy, cholecystectomy and hernia repair as well as more complex ones such as splenectomy, pancreatic and colon surgeries as well as metabolic and bariatric surgeries. Most oncologic surgeries for cancer can also be safely performed with laparoscopic techniques. All laparoscopic surgeries are done under general anesthesia and our team of experts, including surgeons and anesthetists, evaluate you prior to surgery to ensure your suitability and fitness for these procedures.
Medically Supervised Wellness Program?
Most individuals refrain from signing up for a fitness program because of their health conditions. Unaware of the fact that a regular fitness regime will only improve their condition, they lack the confidence to do something without seeking medical advice. Medically-supervised fitness programs are specifically curated to meet the needs of such individuals. At DHI, an individual who is a part of the medically-supervised fitness program will be constantly monitored and assessed by a team of healthcare experts throughout the exercise program to maintain an effective and safe progression of physical activity. This will determine whether the fitness regime helps in meeting the health goals of the individual.
