Obesity Surgery


Obesity is a disease caused by an excessive increase in the amount of lipids available in the body. Adipose tissue is formed on average at 15% of body weight in adult women and 20% of body weight in adult men. An increase of more than 25-30% in the amount of fat available in the body is a sign of the problem of obesity (health condition). If left untreated, obesity can cause various unpleasant sensations (diseases), such as cholesterol, metabolic disorders, high blood pressure, gout, liver obesity (steatoroid hepatosis), type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, joint pain and many more.

All our patients who come to our obesity clinic undergo a detailed medical examination first of all. The right surgical method is determined after taking body mass index, psychological condition, habits and all necessary values ​​and consultation from our doctors. The aim of our detailed preliminary examination is to minimize any risks that may arise in the preoperative phase.

Sleeve gastrectomy (laparoscopic)


Sleeve gastrectomy is one of the surgeries frequently used in bariatric surgery and limits feeding. In this method, mineral supplements and vitamins are not required in the operated patients as there is no problem for the absorption of food. The goal of this operation is to reduce the size of the stomach and thus achieve a feeling of satiety in the patient with little food.


To do this, partially remove the stomach and leave the stomach in the form of a tube. No open surgical technique is used during this operation and the operation is performed with the laparoscopic or robotic surgical method, which really shortens the recovery process.

Gastric Bypass


This is a type of surgery where the absorption and intake of food is reduced. A large part of the stomach is bypassed by gastric bypass surgery and a small volume part of the stomach is prepared and connected to the intestines.


Although this surgery reduces the volume of the stomach, a portion of the intestine is inactivated and its purpose is to empty the portion of the food eaten there without being absorbed. As a result, a feeling of satiety becomes possible for a person, and only a portion of the food taken in this way is digested.

Gastric balloon (stomach)


In the gastric balloon method, an empty balloon is inserted into the stomach using the endoscopic method. Thereafter, the stomach’s food intake capacity decreases as the balloon swells with gas or liquid and thereby the person begins to lose healthy weight in a short time.


The abdominal balloon program is used to treat patients with a BMI of 25 or greater who wish to lose weight without surgery and who have failed to lose weight before surgery or through diet.


Because balloon gastric surgery is not surgery, our patients leave the hospital after this surgery and can return to their daily routine. The most important difference between using a gastric balloon compared to other methods is removing the balloon placed in the stomach after a certain period of time (from 6 months to 12 months). You will be able to protect your weight when you reach your desired weight and develop eating habits.
