Weight Loss Procedures

There are many surgical and non-surgical weight loss options available. Surgery for obesity is performed by keyhole techniques and is highly effective for permanent weight loss, reducing not only weight but also reducing the effects of health conditions associated with obesity. Along the way most people find an improvement in their mobility, body image, self-esteem and enjoyment of life.

 

Keyhole Surgery

Keyhole surgery is also called laparoscopic surgery or minimally invasive surgery. It is performed through tiny incisions. Smaller incisions mean that keyhole surgery results in less pain and scarring, and a better cosmetic outcome. The hospital stay is shorter, recovery is faster, and there is a reduced risk of serious bleeding and infection. Many procedures can now be performed by keyhole techniques.

 

Endoscopy Procedures

Endoscopy is a safe, effective method of examining the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, using a long, thin, flexible, tubular instrument with a tiny video camera and light on the end. It is used to diagnose gastrointestinal problems and to take biopsies, remove polyps, and perform other procedures. Most endoscopy procedures are done as day cases with minimal inconvenience and discomfort.
