Bariatric refers to a branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. Bariatric medicine focuses on helping individuals achieve weight loss through various methods such as diet, exercise, behavior therapy, medications, and in more severe cases, surgical interventions like gastric bypass surgery or gastric sleeve surgery. Bariatric interventions aim to improve overall health by reducing the risks associated with obesity, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.


"Metabolic" refers to the biochemical processes that occur within living organisms to maintain life. These processes involve the conversion of nutrients into energy and the synthesis of essential molecules required for cellular function and growth. Metabolism encompasses various physiological activities such as digestion, respiration, circulation, and excretion.
In a broader sense, "metabolic" can also refer to metabolic disorders or conditions that affect these biochemical processes, leading to abnormalities in energy production, utilization, or storage. Examples of metabolic disorders include diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, hyperthyroidism, and hypothyroidism

Bariatric & Metabolic Disorders

Obesity: Obesity is typically assessed using body mass index (BMI), but other factors such as waist circumference and body composition may also be considered. Obesity increases the risk of various health problems, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, and musculoskeletal disorders.

Metabolic Syndrome : A cluster of conditions including abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and abnormal lipid levels, which collectively increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome A hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age, characterized by irregular menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne, and obesity, often accompanied by insulin resistance.

Hyperlipidemia: Hyperlipidemia is a condition characterized by high levels of fats, including cholesterol and triglycerides, in the bloodstream. These fats, when elevated, can contribute to the buildup of plaque in the arteries, a process known as atherosclerosis. This buildup narrows the arteries and restricts blood flow, increasing the risk of cardiovascular diseases like heart attacks and strokes

Treatment Options

Intragastric Balloon

The intragastric balloon procedure involves placing a deflated balloon in your stomach, which is then inflated to reduce the amount of space available for food. This helps you feel fuller faster and promotes weight loss. It's a minimally invasive procedure that can be an effective option for those looking to jumpstart their weight loss journey.

Once inside, the balloon is inflated to occupy space in the stomach, thereby reducing its capacity for food intake.
By creating a feeling of fullness with smaller meals, the balloon helps patients control their appetite and promotes weight loss.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, involves removing a portion of the stomach to reduce its size and capacity. This restricts the amount of food you can eat, leading to weight loss. It's a popular option for many patients due to its effectiveness and relatively low risk compared to other procedures.

Gastric sleeve surgery entails removing a large portion of the stomach, leaving behind a smaller, sleeve-shaped stomach.
The reduced stomach size limits the amount of food that can be consumed, leading to decreased calorie intake and subsequent weight loss.

Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Mini gastric bypass surgery is a procedure that involves creating a smaller stomach pouch and rerouting a portion of the small intestine to bypass the rest of the stomach and upper small intestine. This results in reduced calorie absorption and promotes weight loss. It's an effective option for those with significant weight loss goals.
