Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Center

TVGH found the Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Center (減重及代謝手術中心) in September 2017 and organized a team of medical specialists in the fields of bariatrics, metabolism, plastic surgery, nutrition and weight-loss counseling, psychiatry, Chinese acupuncture, sleep medicine, and fitness, to provide comprehensive medical services to overweight patients. The Center also carries out cross-disciplinary clinical and basic research plans.

Because overweight patients often develop metabolic-related symptoms such as high blood pressure and diabetes with hyperlipidemia, bariatric surgery is often also called metabolic surgery. There are three ways to do the surgery, gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy, and gastric bypass. The ratio of patients who choose to receive sleeve gastrectomy has become larger than those who opt for gastric bypass. We would recommend gastric bypass if they have gastroesophageal reflux disease and diabetes, but our patients have the right to decide which to do.
