bariatric surgery in CubaObesity can not only be fatal; it is the leading cause of chronic non-transmissible diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular, kidney, respiratory and joint conditions. Obesity can also affect a person's self-esteem; lead to a negative body image, depression, stigmatization, marginalization, and isolation.

A possible treatment for this condition is bariatric surgery which encompasses a series of procedures designed to remove a portion of the stomach or re-route the small intestine to a small stomach pouch, in order to restrict the amount of food the stomach can hold.

Several years ago, these were large-scale invasive procedures with high mortality rates. Now, however, they are preformed using a minimally invasive technique known as laparoscopic surgery, which allows the surgeon to work with precision, and reduces patient recovery time, post-surgery pain, and damage to the body.

Bariatric surgery is one of our most popular programs among international patients who come to Cuba to be treated for a health problem.

One of the most popular internationally regulated and accepted weight-loss procedures is a gastric sleeve which consists of removing around 80% of the stomach and leaving a small tube able to hold between 150 and 200 milliliters of food.

Meanwhile, gastric bypass surgery contributes to weight-loss by dividing the stomach into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower "remnant" pouch after which the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both.

To be eligible for the procedure a patient must suffer from severe obesity and/or related non-transmissible chronic diseases, and have an understanding of the type of surgery they are going to receive. They must show evidence, validated by specialists, of previous unsuccessful attempts to lose weight, after which they undergo a pre-op evaluation to measure their health parameters. Patients must remain in the country for over a week, during the first three days of which they undergo pre-op medical checks, either outpatient or admitted, depending on their preference. They must then remain in the hospital for 72 hours after the procedure to undergo post-op assessments and rigorous observation, while the length of a patients' stay can be extended depending on the results of their evaluation and recommendation of their doctors. Patients will notice immediate results, but must continue to follow a specialized treatment plan which includes lifestyle changes, above all in regards to diet. Cuban doctors advise patients on what kind of foods they should be eating, how much, when, with what, and in what way, as well as information on the right kind of exercises to do.
