Nearly 17 per cent of teenagers in Chennai, 19 per cent in Hyderabad and 21 per cent in Mumbai were obese and if they undergo surgeries, they could reduce weight considerably without any complications, Dr J S Rajkumar, chairman and chief surgeon, Rigid Hospitals, has said.
Speaking to reporters in Chennai yesterday on 'Obesity', Dr Rajkumar said the latest surgeries like vertical band gastroplasty, pro-ring gastroplasty or gastrojejunostomy could reduce obesity phenomenonally.
He said that in vertical band gastroplasty, the capacity of the stomach was reduced between 50 ml and 100 ml (as against 3000 cc) with the help of a stapler.A band, positioned in place, acted as an outlet for the other portion of the stomach and avoids expansion in future. 'This surgery has been performed on three persons who had lost 30 to 40 kg in a few months,' he said.
'Pro-ring has the same principle except that a ring is used in place of a band.The surgery has been performed successfully on two persons', he said.The more advanced surgery, known as 'Long Roux-en-Y gastro jejunostomy', had been done on 10 patients in the past two years.In this procedure, the food was by-passed directly into the mid-small intestine, bypassing about 100 cm to 110 cm of small intestines. 'The weight loss in this procedure is more than in the previous two surgeries', he said.
He said that before the surgeries, there was a need for psychological counselling and selection of patients as they come with the preconceived notion that they need to be operated upon without having tried any natural way to shed weight.He said research work was being planned by Rigid Hospitals along with M V Diabetes Centres at Gopalapuram and Royapuram in the city to find out whether decrease in obesity would reduce diabetes problems or not.
