Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery

Surgery is available for obese patients who satisfy certain criteria, including patients with metabolic diseases (eg. diabetes) that are not controlled by conventional means.

Surgery results in sustained weight loss. It also leads to remission or improvement of co-morbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and obstructive sleep apnoea.

Various procedures are available that can be tailored to each individual patient. These include:

  • Sleeve Gastrectomy,
  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass,
  • Bilio-Pancreatic Diversion, and
  • Biocentric Intragastric Baloon Insertion.

All of these are performed via Laparoscopy (keyhole surgery), providing less painful and faster recovery. 95% of our patients stay not more than 2 days after their operation.

Bariatric surgical patients need to make changes to their lifestyle and eating habits. They also require lifelong follow-up with our dedicated team of professionals.

As part of the ICOD, our Bariatric Support Group (Singapore LapBandits) runs once every three months. This is a support group for bariatric surgical patients and family members and provides support for those who have had surgery, as well as those who are contemplating surgery. You can visit the group's Facebook page for more information.

Healthy eating and regular exercise are essential to ensure the long term maintenance of weight loss, and improvement or remission of co-morbidities associated with obesity.
