Affordable Gastric Sleeve Surgery in India

Gastric Sleeve done to Perfection in Indian Hospitals


Medical tourism has been benefiting patients especially those in advanced countries like the USA and the UK, where cost of surgical procedures is so high that they cannot afford it, even with an insurance cover. People with morbid obesity, who do not respond to traditional methods of weight loss are advised bariatric surgery. This surgery is highly recommended if they also have other conditions such as cardiovascular issues and diabetes, which are quite common in these cases.

Bariatric surgery, a process in which surgeons use laparoscopic techniques to conduct gastric bypass process or to remove a part of the stomach also known as gastric sleeve, varies from around $ 20000 to $ 25000 in the USA. The same laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery in India costs around $ 6000 or even less. You get the same standard of care, quality and skilled surgeons in India as in the USA or UK but for a fraction of the cost that you would have to pay in your home country. Even including the cost of air travel, the overall cost is far less than what they would pay in their home country.

If you are also suffering from obesity and need a long term effective solution, which you can afford, it is time you should look at hospitals in India. Hospitals in India are equipped with the latest equipments and with a panel of highly qualified and skilled surgeons. Bariatric surgery is a complex procedure and requires highly trained and experienced surgeons to do the job.

Gastric sleeve, also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy involves reducing the size of the stomach by around 70%. This is done by using staples to stitch portions of the stomach, making it a narrow sleeve. This reduces the capacity of the stomach to hold or accept food, which in turn reduces the patient’s food intake resulting in massive weight loss.

Not only that, the portion of the stomach which is responsible for secretion of hunger stimulating hormone- Ghrelin is removed resulting in reduced feeling of hunger. Gastric sleeve, thus, works on two mechanisms- restriction in the amount of food that the stomach can hold and reducing the feeling of hunger resulting in massive weight loss.  .

The patient needs to stay in the hospital for 3-4 days after the surgery under medical supervision to make sure he/ she is healing well. A week in India is required for adequate recovery before you can head back home.
