G & L Surgical Offers Various Weight Loss Procedure Options


G & L Surgical, a surgical clinic in Singapore provides for various medical procedure and treatments for gastrointestinal cancers and other health needs.

They aim to provide only the best for its patients. Its services are founded on the philosophy that their services are characterized by the belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole, and that these too are characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.

Weight Loss Procedure Options take in Endoscopic Instragastric Balloon Insertion, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, Laparoscopic Gastric Banding, and Laparoscopic Roux en Y Gastric Bypass.

Endoscopic Instragastric Balloon Insertion is an option for weight management, which aims insert the balloon into the stomach. This is done with a gastroscopy under sedation. After six months, the balloon will be removed. The projected weight loss is usually about 15% of the original weight.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is a procedure in which the stomach is stapled and divided vertically. This procedure requires specially designed surgical staplers, using the keyhole or laparoscopic method. By doing this, about 2/3 or 60% of the stomach will be removed. The remaining stomach is now in the shape of a long narrow tube resembling a shirt sleeve. The much smaller size of the stomach restricts the amount of food the stomach can hold at a time. The appetite for food is also reduced.

Laparoscopic Gastric Banding is done using the laparoscopic or keyhole technique. This simply involves placing a band, within an inflatable balloon on the inside of it, around the upper portion of the stomach. The band will then restrict the amount of food you can eat. Tightening of the band will be done progressively over many months and is both adjustable and reversible.

Laparoscopic Roux en Y Gastric Bypass is a procedure done via the laparoscopic or keyhole technique. A small pouch of upper stomach is created and separated from the rest of the stomach using specially designed surgical staplers. This allows the patient to eat a small amount. Food is then directed further down the path of the small intestine. The length of intestines left to absorb calories is shorter causing a certain degree of malabsorption and reducing the amount of calories and nutrients absorbed.

It likewise offers services for Anorectal Surgery in treatment of Haemorrhoids, Anal Fistula, Anal Fissure and Perianal Abscess. They also conduct Emergency Surgeries on Skin Infection, Bleeding Gastrointestinal Tract and Trauma Surgery, and provides for other service treatments on Lipomas Skin Cyst and Enlarged Lymph Glands.

Endoscopy procedures are also available at G & L Surgical which include Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy. Meanwhile, it offers under its Advanced Laparoscopy, the procedures for Hernia Surgery, Galbladder Surgery and Anti-Reflux Surgery.

The services that the surgical clinic provides for its Cancer Surgery are treatments such as Oesophageal Cancer treatment, Stomach or Gastric Cancer treatment and Colorectal cancer treatment. The clinic believes that surgery is the generally most effective way to deal with Colorectal Cancer. If all tumors can be removed, the prognosis is good. In patients with rectal cancer, or where the tumor is very large or invading an adjacent organ, we may recommend initial chemotherapy or radiotherapy to shrink the tumor before proceeding with surgery.

The surgical clinic which has specialist centers in Mt Elizabeth Novena, Mt Elizabeth Medical and Parkway East Hospital, provides for other services such as its General Procedure Consultation, Gastrointestinal procedure including stomach and colorectal cancers, Laparoscopic procedure including hernias, gallbladder and appendix, Endoscopy – gastroscopy and colonoscopy and 24 hour Emergency procedure and Trauma procedure.
