this takes place in several stages:

The obese patient is addressed to us by a colleague, by word of mouth or even from internet. We then take the following information :

  1. His ID.
  2. His age.
  3. His BMI (an impedancemetry is performed in the office).
  4. His medical and surgical history.
  5. His type of eating behavior.
  6. His psychic state.
  7. His motivation.
  8. The different schemes he has already undergone.
  9. The different medications he takes.

Then, a complete clinical examination is done in search of the old scars, varicose veins … In this first consultation, a good half-hour is devoted to the information of the patient on the different techniques of bariatric surgery and their complications – He will ask all questions and will receive written documentation to be commented at the next consultation.

 

Le patient, s’il est venu de lui-même, est adressé au nutritionniste.
Ensuite, il devra faire :

  1. Un bilan de sang peu exhaustif.
  2. Un examen cardiaque (ECG + /- échographie du cœur).
  3. Une radiographie des poumons.
  4. Une échographie abdominale.
  5. Un transit oeso-gastro-duodénal (si anneau) ou une gastroscopie avec biopsies (si gastric by pass ou sleeve gastrectomie).
  6. Éventuellement, une exploration fonctionnelle respiratoire

Le tout sera clôturé par une consultation pré-anesthésique avec l’anesthésiste à la clinique. Le patient, dûment convaincu et bien informé de la procédure qu’il va subir sera revu pour être programmé.

Patients rating and comments

Sleeve Gastrecomie made in November 2017
My dream of being a slim day and in good shape is realized, I weigh 68 kg, I feel very well with no physical or psychological suffering I did my blood tests and have no deficiency, everything is ok, no diabetes so everything is going well.
Marie Christine
Having always had weight problems, I decided to proceed to gastric Sleeve, something I could not do in France because of my BMI considered “too weak”. I was 94 kilos for 1m71.
Dr. Abittan is very reassuring and he knows what he is talking about and the whole team is listening. I weigh ajd 73 kilos which makes me a loss of 20kilos.
