Minimal Access & Bariatric Surgery

  Minimal Access Surgery (MAS) refers to a specialized form of surgery that allows surgeons to operate without making large incisions as are done in traditional (open) surgery. As MAS is carried out with the help of tiny incisions, patients have less postoperative pain, spend shorter time in the Hospital and recover significantly faster than after open surgery. Today, experts can perform almost 70% of abdominal operations using MAS.

Surgical Experts at Suguna Hospital use MAS for dealing with a variety of Abdominal Problems (Laparoscopic Surgery) as well as for treating Diseases in the Chest (Thoracoscopic Surgery).

  Minimal Access Surgery offers several benefits
Less Pain.
Better Cosmesis.
Shorter Hospital Stay.
Quick Recovery.

Less Complications
Better Clinical Outcome.
Early Return to Work.
Early Return to Normal Activity.



"Weight loss surgery is not a cosmetic surgery"

National Institute of Health consensus conference has concluded that surgery is the only effective treatment for long-term and sustained weight loss which results in improvement and/or resolution of co morbid conditions, improved quality of life and self-esteem, and increase in longevity.

The most common questions people ask are - 'What is Obesity Surgery?' , 'Is it same as liposuction?' and so on...

Remove Extra Unwanted Fat

Liposuction is a surface surgery performed to remove extra unwanted fat from different parts of body, this is basically a surgery for body sculpturing not weight loss,where as; obesity (Bariatric Surgery) gives options for that has evolved into three categories,restrictive procedures,Gastric band, Sleeve gastrectomy, Malabsorptive procedures; Biliopancreatic diversion with or without duodenal switch, and combined procedures, Roux-en-Y-Gastric Bypass (RYGB). Hence, selection of the procedure has to be individualized based on the age, BMI, presence or absence of co-morbidities, patient's preference and compliance, surgeons experience etc. However, the experience of the Bariatric surgeon is the most crucial in selecting the right procedure for an individual.


The actual weight a patient will lose after the operation depends upon several factors. These include:

Patient's Age
Weight Before Surgery
Overall Condition of Patient's Health
Surgical Procedure
Ability to Exercise
Commitment to Maintaining Dietary Guidelines and other Follow-up Care
Motivation of Patient and Cooperation of Family, Friends and Associates

A recent study established the following criteria for successful bariatric surgery: "the ability to achieve and maintain loss of at least 50 percent of excess body weight without having significant adverse effects". Clinical studies show that, following surgery, most patients lose weight rapidly and continue to do so until 18 to 24 months after the procedure. Patients may lose 30 to 50 percent of their excess weight in the first six months, and 77 percent of excess weight as early as 12 months after surgery. Many patients with Type II Diabetes, while showing less overall excess weight loss, have demonstrated excellent resolution of their diabetic condition, to the point of having little or no need for continuing medication. A comprehensive clinical review of bariatric surgery data showed that patients who underwent a bariatric surgical procedure experienced complete resolution or improvement of their co-morbid conditions including diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea etc.
