Laparoscopic mini gastric bypass in Mumbai, India is a type of weight-loss/bariatric surgery. Best doctor or surgeon for performing laparoscopic mini gastric bypass must have the following qualities:
Training and experience in performing laparoscopic mini gastric bypass: Patients suffering from severe obesity are a very difficult subset of patients. Severe obesity leads to a lot of intra-abdominal fat and enlarged livers, thus making it very difficult for the surgeon to operate. Laparoscopic mini gastric bypass is a technically difficult bariatric surgery. It also requires a lot of laparoscopic suturing. Hence it is extremely important that the surgeon is specially trained in the nuances of bariatric surgery and to be able to deal with excessive obesity. A well-trained surgeon will have lesser complications and better outcomes. Training goes a long way in decreasing the mortality rates as well.
Best surgeon or doctor for laparoscopic mini gastric bypass surgery in mumbai must also be approachable to her/his patients. After other surgeries, usually the work of the surgeon gets over once the patient is discharged from the hospital. This does not happen after mini gastric bypass as these patients need life-long support. These patients need regular follow up to avoid any long term complications and nutritional deficiencies. These patients also need to be motivated continuously so that they embrace the diet and lifestyle modification forever. Hence it is very important for your surgeon to be approachable and responsive. An approachable surgeon will have an approachable team. A surgeon who understands this is definitely one of the best surgeons for mini gastric bypass. Surgeon and her team must also be well-versed with nutritional demands of a mini gastric bypass and must guide you properly for the follow up that is needed. As there is more mal-absorption after this surgery, the requirement for nutritional supplements like protein, multi-vitamin, calcium and iron is much higher as compared to other bariatric surgeries.
Another attribute of the best surgeon or doctor for laparoscopic mini gastric bypass is that of giving ‘time’ to the patient. A surgeon or doctor must give you ample time during the consultations to guide you about the surgery and take an informed decision. The best doctor or surgeon will also guide you about the follow up protocol after bariatric surgery. Please remember, follow up with the bariatric team is life-long. She/he will also lay stress on attending support group meetings as these are a good way of keeping up the motivation after bariatric surgery.
In short the best doctor or surgeon for laparoscopic mini gastric bypass must be well trained and experienced, compassionate, have a strong work ethic, be knowledgeable and professional and have the passion and focus for this branch of surgery.
