WHAT IS DIABETES SURGERY?

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is an important component of metabolic syndrome which includes Obesity, hypertension and dyslipidemias. The concept takes origin from Bariatric (also called Obesity surgery) which was initially intended to treat Obesity permanently. But it was noticed that most patients with diabetes, this was completely cured over a follow up of 10-15 yrs. Further research and scientific data both from our Institute and other pioneer institutes in the world have shown that, this was related to certain hormonal changes which bring diabetes under remission on a permanent basis. Hence this hormonal concept was further studied and the results have shown promising results in control of diabetes even in patients using large doses of insulin and also inadequate control in-spite of various medication usage. Hence this is ideally suited for those patients who want to get rid of their insulin shots and also not able to achieve diabetes remission in-spite of maximum medical therapy.

Especially with India becoming the diabetic capital and more and more usage of insulin this diabetic surgery is possibly the only solution in this subgroup of patients. A recent Level I evidence that compared Bariatric surgery and medical therapy has clearly shown that surgery for diabetes provides most effective diabetic control in the short and long term compared to medical therapy.

GEM Obesity & Diabetes Surgery Centre holds pride to have performed the largest numbers of such surgeries in Asia and the only centre experienced to perform all kinds of such operations including novel procedures like Laparoscopic Duodenojejunal bypass, Laparoscopic Ileal Interposition etc.
