The doctor. Resa presents a faster, simpler, safer and better recovery technique.

For more than 10 years, Dr. Resa de Clinica Montpellier de Zaragoza, practices a 30-minute intervention to treat obesity and / or type 2 diabetes. This surgery is minimally traumatic, so it provides a quick recovery, with practically nonexistent pain, very early mobility, tolerance of food in a few hours and stay of less than 2 days.

Like Dr. Resa says: "The fact of needing so little dissection drastically decreases the possibility of hemorrhage and when there is a single anastomosis the chances of leakage, very scarce in any case, descend by half. Technical simplification avoids many postoperative complications in the short and long term. In addition, we have achieved an intervention with greater tract of common intestine, which decreases steatorrhea and improves the absorption of vitamins.

With the simplification of the technique, the risk perception that we had of bariatric surgery has disappeared and the adaptation of the intestinal measurement for each patient, according to weight, height and metabolic situation, allows us to use it to solve the morbid obesity and its concomitant pathologies in patients with any body mass index greater than 35 or type 2 diabetes in patients with a body mass index between 30 and 35.

The fact of being a minimal risk intervention and adaptable to the needs of each patient makes it ideal as an operation of the growing metabolic surgery. The overall decrease in the cost of the operation, surgical time, stay and complications make the surgery cheaper than the medical treatment of the metabolic problems it solves.

In the intervention we performed a bypass, effective in weight loss, but that does not mean a significant reduction of the stomach, allowing patients to eat normally without the need to drastically change their long-term intake habits. This provides a great quality of life "concludes Dr.. Resa.
