Nice doctors, very quickly and my tests were done. Full professionalism. Those who complain so let them heal in private! After all, the state is giving away money to pathologists, so you can not only afford alcohol and legal highs, but also a private medical visit, no one will tell you to go hunting if you don't like it!

In June 2020, I had a gastric stomach made in the clinic, and I felt in good hands at the KCM Clinic. I received a very warm welcome. I had a single room, as everyone in the clinic thinks. Very friendly and competent medical team and staff. The clinic is very well maintained and modern. I was able to leave the clinic 2 days after the operation because everything went well. I can really only recommend the clinic. Many thanks to the KCM Clinic team.

I had a consultation at this point for knee arthroscopy. The procedure took place in Jelenia Góra. After a week I returned to walking without the help of a crutch. Today, the knee is like new :) I highly recommend!

What you need to know about Gastric Sleeve in Poland

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a weight loss procedure in which a large part of the stomach is surgically removed, reducing the stomach size by up to 85%, with the remaining portion of the stomach looking like a banana or a sleeve. Given the severely reduced stomach size, patients are unable to consume and digest as much food before quashing their hunger and feeling full - as a result, rapid weight loss can be achieved. This type of surgery is non-reversible and should only be considered as a final option. 

A person is termed obese if their body mass index (BMI) is greater than 40 and their weight is 100 lbs / 50 kg more than their ideal weight. For these people, Bariatric Surgery is an available option. There are many associated risks concerned with Obesity that can lead to hypertension, infertility, diabetes, sleep apnea, and much more. When methods, such as dieting and exercising do not work, a Gastric Sleeve procedure can be the final solution, but not everyone is a good candidate and each individual should carefully consider the best options available to them, considering present condition, health history, cost, recovery time, success rate and pros and cons of the surgery. Alternatively, a Gastric Balloon may be preferred instead - see below for more information on this non-invasive procedure.

MyMediTravel currently lists facilities in Poland offering Gastric Sleeve procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Gastric Sleeve is usually standardized across all patients but a pre-assessment by the surgeon will confirm the price prior to traveling.

What does a Gastric Sleeve Procedure Involve?

Surgery is performed under general anesthesia using a laparoscope, with several small incisions being made on the belly, a tube fitted with a camera (laparoscope) is then inserted through these incisions to give a clear picture of the insides. The surgeon will view these images, before beginning the process of surgically removing up to 85% of the stomach's volume using special surgical instruments. The remaining stomach pouch now resembles a dramatically reduced sleeve or banana. All the instruments are removed and the incisions are stitched and bandages applied to the wounds. 

How Long Should I Stay in Poland for a Gastric Sleeve Procedure?

Gastric sleeve surgery is an inpatient procedure that lasts about one hour in the operation theatre. After this, you are moved to a recovery room where your vitals are monitored. A two to three days hospital stay is required after surgery and you are discharged when your condition is stable. You should stay in Poland for at least 7-8 days for follow up check-ups. During this period, you are kept under review and the stitches are removed after 5 to 7 days. 

What's the Recovery Time for Gastric Sleeve Procedures in Poland?

It will take two to three months to get back to normal meals and the amount of food you will eat is considerably decreased. You will likely suffer from a swollen and sore stomach for several days, with medicines being prescribed to help deal with the pain during this period. After two to four weeks, you can return to some normal activities, however, on average, six weeks of rest is required. As it is laparoscopic surgery, less time is required to recover and scars are small which fade away over time. 

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Gastric Sleeve Procedures in Poland?

The following are some points to consider after leaving the hospital:

  • Intake only liquids for the first two to three days. After this, you can start taking pureed food and shakes. You will have to continue with this for at least 4 weeks. After which you can start eating solid food items. Do not eat very heavy food items. Avoid drinking water with food, as it fills your small stomach immediately. 
  • Follow a proper diet plan as you will have to fulfill your nutritional requirements with a smaller amount of food.
  • Take multivitamins and minerals daily. Especially vitamin B12, as pernicious anemia needs to be prevented.
  • Do not climb up the stairs, also, do not bend. Avoid those activities which can put stress on your abdomen. 
  • Change your bandage regularly and do not let it get wet as this can cause infection. 
  • Ensure you have regular check-ups and your weight loss is recorded during these visits.
  • Take your painkillers regularly to relieve yourself from the post-surgery pain.

What's the Success Rate of Gastric Sleeve Procedures in Poland?

You can expect to lose 60% of your excess weight within 12 to 18 months post-surgery. The Gastric Sleeve is now the most popular form of Bariatric Surgery based on the extremely high success rates seen across the world. Patients can expect a huge decrease in weight, coupled with a vast improvement in health conditions and a reduction in such diseases as diabetes.

Are there Alternative Bariatric Procedures Available?

The following are some non-surgical or minimally invasive alternatives to gastric sleeve surgery:

  • Weight losing drugs: with this method, some drugs are prescribed which can help with the weight loss process. You can lose 5% to 10% of your excess weight in one year through this and it is known as pharmacotherapy. 
  • VBLOC therapy: with this therapy, a pacemaker device is implanted into the skin of your abdominal wall. The device is connected to electrodes that are placed at the trunk of the vagus nerve through small incisions. Vagus nerve signals can be periodically blocked to reduce your eating desire and it is a minimally invasive procedure.

Are there Other Alternative Bariatric Procedures?

1. Gastric Band - Considered a reversible Bariatric Surgery option, a silicone device is fitted at the top portion of the stomach, cutting off the bottom section and creating a small stomach pouch above. The reduced stomach size now means the volume of food consumed is much smaller before the patient becomes full, thus resulting in rapid weight loss. Once the desired weight is achieved, the band can be surgically removed.

2. Gastric Bypass - The stomach is divided into two parts; a small upper pouch and a large lower ‘remnant’ pouch. The small intestine is rearranged accordingly, bypassing the large pouch and thus significantly reducing the volume of the stomach.

3. Gastric Balloon - This non-invasive procedure does not involve surgery and instead an inflatable balloon-like device is endoscopically placed into the stomach and inflated, thus reducing the capacity of the stomach. with the balloon occupying most of the stomachs volume, the patient becomes full much quicker, leading to rapid weight loss. Once the desired weight is achieved, the balloon is deflated and removed.
