Endobariatric surgery is the newest choice for weight loss.

Obesity in India has become a public health crisis. A lot of us are either overweight or obese. When dietary changes, lifestyle changes, and medications (pharmacotherapy) fail, doctors will go to bariatric surgery. But such weight loss surgery is recommended only in moderately obese people with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 35.

Gastroenterologists from across the country and some international experts explored weight-loss surgery choices for moderately obese people on Fridays.
“Endoscopic gastroplasty is the latest minimally invasive weight-loss procedure. This is emerging as a popular alternative to traditional bariatric surgery. Patients who do not wish to undergo surgery prefer this choice, “said Dr. Saurabh Mukewar of Nagpur.
He said that those who have BMI between 30 and 35 may also opt for this procedure to avoid additional weight gain and health complications.

“Like any other weight-loss operation, this surgery often requires a commitment to a healthy post-surgery lifestyle. You need to make permanent positive changes to your diet and exercise on a regular basis to achieve long-term success, “he said.

Dr. Kartik Sampath from New York said that endoscopic solutions can minimize complications when treating kidney stones, pancreas, and intestinal problems. Not only in bariatric surgery, advanced endoscopic procedures can be useful in the treatment of problems in the pancreatic duct, large intestine (colon) and rectum, “he said. Many pancreatic disorders, which can not be easily distinguished by non-invasive imaging techniques (CT scan / ultrasound etc) and traditional tissue sampling, can be detected by endoscopy.

The leading gastroenterologist Dr. Shrikant Mukewar was the conveyor of this event called GPCON 2020. Dr. Mukewar said that most modern methods for treating digestive system disorders are now available in Nagpur.
