What is Bariatric Surgery?
In combination with a healthy diet and exercise, bariatric surgery is a treatment modality for improving obesity and obesity-related diseases. It involves making changes to the digestive system — either to cause a reduction in the amount of food you are able to eat comfortably or a reduction in the absorption of calories from the food you eat, or both. This results in the management of weight and ultimately improves health and well-being.

Focusing on weight reduction and healthy lifestyle changes, bariatric surgeons at Ruby Hall Clinic Wanowarie provide comprehensive pre-operative, peri-operative, and post-operative surgical care. Some of the speciality services offered include:
Our experts analyse the cause of your obesity and depending on your age and other lifestyle factors determine if and which kind of weight loss surgery would best suit you.
Based on your condition, our experts recommend and perform the following types of bariatric surgery both by open and laparoscopic procedures:
- Gastric bypass (known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass) creates a small stomach pouch out of a portion of the stomach and attaches it directly to the small intestine
- Sleeve or vertical sleeve gastrectomy creates a small stomach pouch without affecting the small intestine
- Gastric banding ties up a portion of the stomach
Bariatric surgery is considered a success when you not just lose weight but successfully manage to keep it off. It involves a change in lifestyle and at times, patients may require support and counselling through the journey. Holding your hand every step of the way, our hospital offers support through the entire continuum of care — right from nutrition to counselling and even support groups.
