Here's Why Patients Choose Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Bypass Surgery over Gastric Balloon


Vilnius, Lithuania -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/18/2017 -- Bariatric surgery is one amongst several types of surgeries that most patients choose to go abroad for – whether for a gastric bypass, or a gastric sleeve, patients are happy to save, even with the travel costs added.

Gastric balloon is a weight loss type of surgery that is also getting some attention from people doing research, but only in the very initial steps. As soon as patients realize the differences between the different types of surgery, gastric sleeve or gastric bypass abroad are the only two options that most consider.

"Still, even when someone feels they know what type of surgery they want, operating surgeon is the one to advise best on what type of surgery would be most suitable for that specific patient." says Andrius Jonutis, the General Deputy Manager at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Differences between these surgeries have been discussed in detail in an interview with an expert – the leading surgeon for abdominal and gastric surgeries - Dr. Nerijus Kaselis, experienced bariatric surgeon at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania:

"While some procedures like gastric sleeve, or gastric bypass, can be considered long-term solutions, gastric balloon is only a transitional procedure. Its main goal is to help patients lose weight before the actual operation." – says Dr. Nerijus Kaselis, the leading bariatric surgeon at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.

This is the main reason why patients choose to have a gastric bypass, or a gastric sleeve surgery abroad – most want a permanent solution and these are the two best options to achieve permanent results for weight loss.

At Kardiolita Hospital, gastric surgeries are performed by the general and abdominal surgeon Dr. MD Nerijus Kaselis, who has been performing bariatric surgeries regularly for the past 10+ years. At Kardiolita Hospital, gastric surgery prices start at 4500 Eur, which is significantly lower than in other European countries and therefore is a huge deciding factor for patients from abroad.
