General Surgery Departments of Medwell Istanbul  provide patients with treatment and diagnosis services in the following fields.

Diabetes Surgery (Metabolic)

Diabetes surgery is performed for those with Type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood sugar, and when blood sugar cannot be maintained within the limits despite the medication and insulin used. Diabetes surgery is performed as a closed surgery. The surgery is done with small incisions. In the operation, 50% of the stomach is removed, the location of the small intestines is changed.

With this change, there is a stimulus for insulin secretion from the pancreas and the efficiency increases. Thus, Type 2 diabetes is completely eliminated. And people get rid of obesity after this surgery. The advantage of this surgery consists of details such as not being as painful as open surgeries, not experiencing lung problems, short return to normal life, and no scarring after surgery.
