Panama City, Panama (PressExposure) May 03, 2008 -- In an interview with Nip and Tuck Panama Dr Chitrit an expert in the newest procedure to treat obesity called âlaparoscopic vertical sleeve gastrectomyâ was asked in simplistic terms how the procedure worked.
Dr Chitrit went onto explain that the procedure is a resection of the outer part of the stomach leaving only 90 cc capacity (around 3 ounces) and also, losing the sensation of hunger due to a decrease of the ghrelin, a hormone produced in the stomach and associated with the feeling of hunger. The patients with sleeve gastrectomy loses the same weight as a bypass procedure without all the risks of having intestinal obstructions, intestinal leaks.
Dr Chitrit went on to say that many potential candidates may have contemplated âBy Passâ previously but may have decided against the procedure because of the risk factor. Now this new procedure reduces the risk element while lowering the cost factor as well.
A spokesman for Nip and Tuck Panama said that â Dr. Chitrit already has a team of specialized staff catering for the varied needs of the Medical tourist and his presence on our Medical Tourism team has added a new dimension to the number of different procedures we can now offer the Medical Tourist for Plastic Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery, Gastric Banding and Laparoscopic Surgery. The Medical Tourist will be more than well catered for in his or her health tourism and Surgery abroad in Panamaâ.
