Surgical procedures

  • Strategic slimming: A minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure reduces your stomach size by approximately 80%, eliminating hunger centres and decreasing the hunger hormone.
  • Efficient digestion: The surgery leaves you with a smaller gastric tube (around 100ml), promoting rapid fullness and limiting food intake.

Advantages of Gastric Sleeve Surgery:

  • Minimally invasive: Experience a swift recovery with laparoscopic surgery, including a short hospital stay and minimal postoperative discomfort.
  • Effective weight loss: Achieve sustainable weight loss results with the gastric sleeve procedure.
  • Metabolic benefits: Experience improved metabolic conditions associated with obesity, like diabetes and high blood pressure.
  • Enhanced satiety: Post-surgery, you'll eat less and feel full more quickly, effectively curbing your appetite.


  • Experience the transformative power of gastric plication, a minimally invasive bariatric procedure that reduces stomach size without implants or metallic staples.

The procedure: 

  • This method involves creating folds in the gastric wall, followed by suturing the folds using non-absorbable surgical threads. As this procedure avoids gastric resections, the risk of complications is exceptionally low, nearly non-existent.


  • No implants or staples are involved
  • Minimally invasive, rapid recovery
  • Significant weight reduction

  • Discover the transformative power of gastric bypass surgery, strategically separating a small portion of your stomach, leading to better digestion and significant weight loss.

Procedure Overview:

  • Stomach isolation: A small stomach section is separated from the rest, creating a smaller upper pouch.
  • Intestinal connection: A portion of the intestine is linked to the isolated stomach pouch, allowing food to bypass the small intestine's lower stomach and upper part.
  • Quick satiety: Food quickly reaches the intestinal lining with the modified pathway, triggering a swift sensation of fullness.
