High blood pressure treatment with weight loss surgery

According to World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1 billion people suffer from hypertension globally. Experts foresee this figure to shoot up to 1.56 billion by 2025. Despite several treatment options such as diet & lifestyle change, and medication, hypertension continues to prevail as a comorbidity of other diseases, and the most prevalent is obesity – a pandemic. Well, not anymore! With the advancing medical technologies, ALSA Pakistan has brought you the most promising solution to obesity and hypertension. The laparoscopic weight loss surgery for high blood pressure treatment.

Hypertension and Weight loss

Hypertension has been a great concern for our professionals. This is because it serves as a modifiable risk to health conditions such as renal diseases, congestive heart failure, stroke, vascular disease, heart attack, and obesity. Moreover, obesity and hypertension are proportionally related to each other, which results in higher death rates among people suffering from obesity-related hypertension. Therefore, weight loss is considered to be a reasonable solution to high blood pressure. Hence, one of the top-notch bariatric surgeons in Pakistan, Dr. Tahir Yunus, has stepped forward to offer laparoscopic and bariatric surgery as an option to treat hypertension.

Laparoscopic Weight Loss Surgery

Laparoscopic weight loss surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to treat obesity hypertension due to the relation between weight loss and blood pressure. Being minimally invasive, the surgery ensures speedy recovery and significant ‘improvement in the patient’s condition. Our expert laparoscopic surgeons make four small incisions during the surgery and insert a laparoscope – a camera and other surgical instruments for the surgery.

Laparoscopic bariatric surgery has proved to be the best option to control high blood pressure weight loss because:

  • There are minimal chances of infection and sepsis.
  • The surgery takes only about 1 to 2 hours and allows much faster recovery than open surgery
  • There are lesser chances of procedural complications and risks in laparoscopic surgery.
  • In comparison to open surgery, the surgeon cut a very small opening. Hence, it causes minimum scarring and less bleeding.

Despite the treatment options to cure blood pressure by weight, there are different procedures that your weight loss surgeon decides depending upon the diagnosis. The laparoscopic and bariatric surgery options to treat blood pressure by weight include the following:

1 Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

The surgery involves resizing the stomach into a banana-shaped tube structure to restrict the food intake and enhance the feeling of satiety. Moreover, the surgery results in the lesser release of the appetite-regulating hormone.

2 Laparoscopic Roux-Y Gastric Bypass,

To cure high blood pressure by weight loss, your surgeon resizes your stomach to the size of an egg by stapling the upper stomach. Further, he connects this egg-sized pocket to the roux appendage in the small digestive system. Hence, the stomach capacity to hold food reduces, and due to the stapled portion stomach fails to absorb the calories and fats from food.

3 Laparoscopic mini gastric bypass

During mini-gastric bypass, the surgeon cuts a smaller portion of the stomach, leaving a larger stomach than in the Roux-en Y gastric bypass surgery – perfect to avoid acid reflux.
