Obesity and Metabolic Diseases Surgery


Liv Hospital is a co-authorized partner by completing the "Center of Excellence Accreditation" in the field of obesity surgery by passing the rigorous inspection by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), an international neutral commission. Center of Excellence Accreditation, which can be taken by a few institutions in the world, was given to an institution by the related institution for the first time outside the USA.

Why the Center of Excellence?

First of all, the adequacy of the physician in the relevant fields, specific studies, treatment of the number of patients equivalent to and with the world criteria, complications, re-hospitalization, analysis of clinical data and functional results are equivalent to accredited institutions, should be proved by the supervisory board.

In addition; patient treatment protocols are determined by joint meetings with other disciplines, care services and the results are all in a whole, to prove that the future was created by planning the future. Institutionalization and treatment outputs to be above a certain quality is also one of the basic application criteria.

Liv Hospital surgeons' number of cases and complication rates, re-hospitalization, re-operation, complication rates, education and qualifications, regular symposiums and trainings, evaluation of the duties, authorities and responsibilities of physicians, nurse, floor attendant and assistant health personnel, and accurate consultation and equipment, anesthesia and surgical procedures safety, infection control, safe drug use, patient rooms, emergency services, examination rooms, clinical care standard protocols, consent forms, corporate commitment and support groups and building safety. audited.

Obesity Surgery

All obesity operations are performed by laparoscopic means, ie, instruments placed in small holes through the abdomen without opening the abdomen. Obesity surgeries are divided into two groups according to the mechanism of action:

  • Restrictive operations
  • Laparoscopic adjustable stomach band
  • Tubular stomach (sleeve gastrectomy) surgery
  • Absorbing operations
  • Gastric bypass, mini gastric bypass
  • Duodenal switch, SADI-S


Laparoscopic Adjustable Stomach Band

In this method, a silicone stomach band is placed in the upper part of the stomach in the form of a clamp. The band is connected to a port under the skin and the width of the band is adjusted with the help of this port. Technically simpler and less side effects. But weight reduction is less than other methods. It can be converted into other operations.

Tube Stomach (Sleeve Gastrectomy)

In this method, 75 percent of the stomach is removed and there is a tubular stomach. Weight reduction is better than the stomach band. Since the anatomy is not impaired, vitamin and mineral deficiency rarely develops and lifelong vitamin-mineral supplementation is not necessary.

Gastric Bypass, Mini-Gastric Bypass

It is a restrictive operation that at the same time prevents absorption. The effect of weight loss and recovery from obesity are better than other methods. Type 2 diabetic patients recover 85-90 percent of their diabetes. The rate of side effects is higher than other methods. Lifelong vitamin-mineral supplements may be required. Mini gastric bypass is a simplified form of gastric bypass surgery. It is easier to practice and has been shown to be as effective as gastric bypass.

Duodenal Switch, SADI-S

Duodenal switch surgery can lead to more disturbed absorption. Tube gastric surgery is performed and the location of the small intestine to be used last 75-100 cm 75i change is made. It is the best correction of obesity related diseases. But the side effect is higher than other operations. Lifelong vitamins and minerals may be required. Patients may have diarrhea, protein deficiency. SADI-S surgery is a simplified form of duodenal switch surgery. The operation time is shorter.
