In case of excess weight and after the failure of traditional diets and treatments, gastroplasty can become necessary.
Gastroplasty consists in surrounding your stomach with an adjustable gastric banding so as to decrease its volume. The size of your stomach can be adjusted and controlled thanks to this band.
This surgical intervention done in visceral surgery in La Parisière private hospital offers the possibility of being reversible, which is one of its many advantages.
Laparoscopy, which represents a huge progress in visceral surgery, has developed after the first cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) in 1987, in Lyon.
What is it?
This surgical technique uses inert carbon dioxide introduced into the peritoneal cavity in order to explore it with an optical instrument and an appropriate video camera.
How is it used?
The peritoneal cavity is normally “virtual”. Therefore, surgeons artificially widen this space by injecting gas in order to establish a pneumoperitoneum. Surgeons can then introduce surgical instruments into the body to perform the intervention required. The number of incisions (scars) as well as their size depends on the type of intervention.
This is done in several steps:
What are the advantages?
This minimally invasive surgery offers many advantages:
Patients awaken earlier and rapidly recover autonomy, which reduces the postoperative risks of complications due to prolonged stay in bed.
This technique also offers surgeons good-quality exploration and surgical vision which rival with or at least are equivalent to standard surgery.
What are the risks and drawbacks?
Both are associated but not necessarily specific to laparoscopic surgery. For example:
It also presents risks that are specific to minimally invasive surgery:
Laparoscopy does not apply to all types of surgery. However, it has become a reference in some interventions such as gallbladder removal or other gynaecologic interventions. Its use has become more and more widespread and now concerns diseases such as inguinal hernia, gastroesophageal reflux disease and liver disorders, but also obesity surgery. Now, it has become possible to use laparoscopy to perform more important interventions such as colon removal when conditions are favourable. Yet it is still little adapted to major surgery.
Laparoscopy has offered surgeons the possibility of having new surgical techniques to treat patients. It has now become a reference in some surgical interventions which benefit from its technological evolution and improvement.
Laparoscopic surgery has been performed since 1989 in La Parisière which has progressively offered more and more laparoscopic interventions to its patients thanks to the progressive careful, diversified education of its surgeons in the best European centres.
Regular investments in state-of-the art materials such as tri-CCD video cameras, ultrasonic shears or monitoring devices allow us to keep our technical equipment up to date to offer the best conditions to the hospital’s surgeons who keep up their education regularly.
