Gastric Bypass Surgery

Excessive weight gain requires investigations and examinations. This weight gain diagnoses obesity. So you had to be aware of obesity and its multiple types so you could have a proper treatment. 

What are the types of obesity and how are they identified?
The type of obesity experienced by the patient is determined by knowing his body mass index, which we obtain through an easy calculation process, which is dividing the weight in kilograms by the square of the height in meters; To be weight/height 2.

Obesity is divided into three types:
1- The first type of obesity, called simple obesity:
It is called this because the patient's body mass index is more than 25 and is the least dangerous type that can be eliminated by dieting or exercising.
2- The second type of obesity, called moderate obesity:
Fat is concentrated in a specific body part, such as the abdomen and waist, so it may be called local obesity. A patient's body mass index of this type is greater than 30. This type of obesity can be disposed of by the administration of the Smart Capsule.
3- The third type of obesity, called excessive obesity:
The patient's body mass index is over 35 and the treatment at this stage is bariatric surgery.

What should be taken into consideration before performing bariatric surgery?
1-The selection of the most skilled and experienced bariatric surgeon is the first thing that must be taken into consideration, to ensure the success of the surgery. 
Dear, you should know very well that this is what you will find by choosing Dr. Heikal Mahmoud, consultant of obesity and laparoscopic surgeries.
2- Your choice of the best bariatric surgeon ensures that you would undergo the most appropriate bariatric surgery. The surgery will achieve the best results and reach the ideal weight.
3- The obese patient must inform Dr. Heikal Mahmoud of his medical history, this includes any chronic diseases he may be suffering from or medications administered regularly, to allow the surgeon to study the case well.
4- The obese patient must do a comprehensive examination and laboratory analysis before undergoing surgery to check his general health.
5- The obese patient must stop smoking for at least two weeks before performing the bariatric surgery.
6- If the patient is diabetic, he must adjust the dose of the medication after the bariatric surgery.

One of the issues that Dr. Heikal Mahmoud is proud of is the great trust of obese patients in him and their choice of him to be their doctor and companion in their journey to get rid of obesity. Dr. Heikal Mahmoud is also honored that his patients come from all countries of the Arab and Western world, not only from Egypt.
