Gastric Sleeve Surgeon and surgery

The gastric sleeve surgery is a keyhole surgery using laparoscopic equipment. It means a few small incisions are made, and the doctor uses camera technique to carry out the surgery. The gastric sleeve surgery takes around 2 hours to perform. You will be admitted to the hospital for 5 nights, and you will consult with a doctor to advice you on future diet. The laporascopic Surgeon is Dr. Narong, an experienced surgeon specialised in Gastric Sleeve surgery. Dr. Narong is the head of Klang Hospital, Bangkok Obesity Clinic, a clinic he has setup at the Thai public hospital. Dr. Narong is also the head gastric sleeve surgeon at Samitivej Thonburi Hospital.

Preparation for Gastric Sleeve

We recommend you discuss with your GP about having a gastric sleeve.  You may also be required to have a sleep test to see if you are suffering from sleep apnea. If you have sleep apnea (sleep apnea is when you stop breathing for a period during sleep) you will be required to bring your own CPAP machine to Thailand and to have used it for minimum 2 weeks prior to surgery.

Do I need to complete a sleep study ?

If you say yes to 3 or more of the below questions you should complete a sleep study before surgery:

1) Do you snore loudly?
2) Do you feel tired, fatigued or sleepy during the day ?
3) Have you been told you stop breathing during your sleep ?
4) Do you have high blood pressure or are treated for high blood pressure ?
5) Is your body mass index greater than 35 ?
6) Are you 50 years old or older?
7) Are you a male with neck circumference greater than 17 inches (42.5 cm), or a female with neck circumference greater than 16 inches (40 cm)?
8) Are you a male?
The sleep study will decide if you require a use a CPAP before surgery. Below you can see a CPAP machine illustrated. The machine applied a mild pressure to keep the airways open and ensure you receive enough oxygen during your sleep.
