Gastric Imbrication Surgery

About the process

If morbid obesity and its fallouts have been a grave concern and you are looking for a procedure with low complication rate, then Gastric imbrication is the answer for you. It is a new weight loss technique that allows surgeons more control over how much stomach restriction is accomplished during surgery, while providing the patient with a reversible solution to obesity.

The Gastric Imbrication Advantage

Gastric Imbrication offers many advantages to surgical weight loss patients including:

  • No intestinal re-routing
  • Minimally invasive
  • Safer than some other alternatives

The short-term results of Gastric Imbrication are promising: substantial weight loss, drastic improvement of obesity-related health problems and a low complication rate.

What is Gastric Imbrication Procedure

Gastric Imbrication is a new laparoscopic procedure in which the surgeon reduces the volume of the stomach by about 60 to 70% by sewing large folds in your stomach, essentially folding it in on itself, to reduce the size of the stomach. There is no cutting, stapling, or removal of the stomach or intestines with the Gastric Imbrication.

During the laparoscopic Gastric Imbrication the stomach volume is reduced about 70% which makes the stomach able to hold less and may help you eat less. The Gastric Imbrication may potentially be reversed or converted to another procedure if needed.

Restrictive Procedure

Gastric imbrication is a restrictive procedure. It greatly reduces the size of your stomach and limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. It does not cause decreased absorption of nutrients or bypass your intestines. After eating a small amount of food, you will feel full very quickly and continue to feel full for several hours.

Our entire staff from to the expert team of anesthesiologists to nurses, will ensure you are treated with utmost care and warmth.

The Aftercare Advantage

Your recovery begins almost immediately after your surgery as you gradually begin to get used to your new way of eating. This starts with a two-week liquid diet that likely will include water, milk, fruit juice and sherbet. The next few weeks will involve thicker liquids such as soup with some vegetables, and eventually you can try yogurts and fruits. After this, you will be able to eat all foods in restricted amounts

Our comprehensive aftercare program focuses on your unique, individual needs.

  • Ongoing lab work, including vitamin level analysis
  • Discussion of diet, exercise & supplements
  • Customized individual eating plan
  • Dietician support
  • Access to psychological support

Pre-operative requirements in order to undergo surgery

  • You must have a dietician evaluation.

  • In addition to a complete medical history, your physician and anesthetist will perform a complete physical examination to ensure you’re in good health before undergoing the procedure. You will undergo blood tests or other diagnostic tests.
  • You may be asked to begin exercising and alter your diet some weeks before surgery.
  • If you’re a woman of child-bearing age, you may receive birth control counselling so that you do not become pregnant in your first year after surgery due to the risk to the fetus from rapid weight loss.

Patient preparation before weight loss surgery

Your surgeon will explain the procedure and give you specific information regarding preparing for surgery. You might be advised to:

  • Quit smoking and discontinue the use of all tobacco and nicotine products as it may lead to delayed wound healing after the surgery.
  • Drink more water and limit other beverages.
  • Stay mentally and physically fit by focusing on your health.
  • Not to eat or drink anything for 10-12 hours before surgery and have a light dinner because the stomach must be empty before anesthesia.

Gastric Imbrication Surgery FAQs

Gastric Imbrication surgery is most similar to gastric sleeve surgery in that both reduce the size of the stomach into a banana shape that connects the esophagus with the small intestines. While gastric sleeve surgery accomplishes this by removing part of the stomach and stapling the remaining part closed, Gastric Imbrication does so by folding the stomach in on itself and holding the folds in place with sutures (stitches).At a high level, gastric Imbrication surgery appears to carry the benefits of the more established procedures:Substantial weight loss like gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgeryPotentially reversible like gastric banding (lap band)

Recovery period will vary from person to person. However, it will take 2 to 3 week’s times to fully recover after the surgery. Your surgeons will advice you about the time you can return to your work.
