The first step in trying to cure obesity is to adhere to a sound diet and exercise program. If these don’t work, another non-surgical procedure to consider is an intragastric balloon to reduce your appetite. We offer two types of intragastric balloons to suitable candidates: the Elipse balloon (a swallowable balloon that lasts 4 months for weight loss of around 5-10kg under the supervision of our gastroenterologist) and the Orbera (an endoscopic six-month balloon offered by our bariatric surgeon). However, if all else fails to provide a satisfactory outcome in moderately and severely obese people, then bariatric surgery could be the most appropriate next step towards weight loss and improved health. Among the risks associated with obesity are certain cancers, heart disease and strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, gallbladder disease and gallstones, osteoarthritis, gout, and breathing problems such as sleep apnea.
We focus on laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for the gastric bypass, mini gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and gastric banding procedures at Novomed Surgical Hospital in Dubai. All of these procedures have their own set of advantages and issues, and our specialist will advise which would be most appropriate for you.
