How surgery Can Treat Metabolic Diseases

Cirugía metabólica

This procedure, performed laparoscopically at the Obesity Control Center®, is proven to drastically improve Diabetes Mellitus Type II, often resulting in the normalization of blood glucose levels. This allows the patient to stop insulin therapy or stop taking oral hypoglycemic agents. Such remission of diabetes also avoids complications like blindness, renal insufficiency, apnea, and some types of cancer. In our experience, the patient will experience improvements immediately following surgery.

What is Metabolic Surgery?

The increasing worldwide epidemic in obesity has been related to the parallel increasing burden of type-2 diabetes and other obesity-related diseases. Obesity is associated with a chronic inflammatory state and insulin resistance so it will increase the risk of developing some diseases (diabetes, heart disease, etc.) or worsen others (arthritis, PCOS, various veins, etc.). This is also known as “metabolic syndrome”.

With over 20 years and 23,000 successful surgeries, OCC is a world-leader in safe and effective weight-loss surgery that will help you get your life back.

Metabolic Surgery FAQS

What’s the price for a Metabolic Surgery?

Depending on the type of gastric surgery requested, prices can vary from around $6,500 to $9,000. The savings by coming to OCC is around 50% of the cost in the US, don’t risk it by looking for the lowest price. Your health and wellbeing are very valuable. Trust the experts with one of the best success rates of any bariatric clinic in the entire world, the United States included!

¿Cuánto peso debo esperar perder?

Studies conducted on metabolic surgery patients show that after one year, weight loss can average more than 75% of excess body weight. One report found that gastric bypass surgery reduced the total number of serious health problems of participating patients by 96%. This level of weight loss can lead to the virtual elimination of a host of diseases, such as type-2 diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol, which significantly lowers your chances of heart and kidney diseases.

What about metabolic surgery complications?

Complications are rare. Leaks, bleeding, hernia, and chronic heartburn can happen, however, with over 23,000 procedures, we have streamlined the whole process of weight loss surgery. Our complication rate is one of the lowest published in the literature, with a 0% leak rate. With the implementation of the new techniques designed at OCC, our patients are experiencing substantial and permanent weight loss without the undesirable symptom of heartburn.

Existen síntomas tras someterse a cualquier tipo de cirugía que están relacionados con la anestesia (somnolencia, mareos, náuseas, etc.) y otros directamente asociados a la propia manga gástrica (calambres, sensibilidad abdominal, vómitos). Afortunadamente, estos se mantienen al mínimo y se tratan médicamente temprano para que la mayoría de los pacientes puedan ponerse de pie en un par de horas y ser dados de alta a la mañana siguiente. ¡Muchos salen de compras al día siguiente de la cirugía!

Can I have a normal life after metabolic surgery?

Food intake will start slowly with a totally liquid diet for a few days, then liquids including the Bariatric Protein Meals, and slowly move into mushy food and, finally, a normal diet.

The surprising fact is that most patients recover much quicker than they thought; in fact, energy levels are usually higher than expected when the nutrition plan includes the Bariatric Multivitamin and Bariatric Protein Shakes recommended by our team of experts.

Lo único que no puede hacer después de la cirugía es comer en exceso sin sentir molestias graves, náuseas e incluso vómitos. Idealmente, la mayoría de los pacientes volverán a tomar tres comidas normales al día y tres refrigerios entre comidas.

Metabolic Surgery vs. Bariatric Surgery – What’s the difference?

Metabolic Surgery is just another name for bariatric surgery. The difference is that this procedure not only targets obesity, but also metabolic syndrome conditions, such as type-2 diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. To learn more about metabolic surgery, visit ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
