What is Transit Bipartition Surgery?
Transit Bipartition is one of the methods used in the treatment of Type-2 diabetes. Diabetes is a condition in which this glucose cannot be transferred to the cells despite the adequate secretion of insulin hormone. If it continues in the long term, it negatively affects the quality of life and can lead to dangerous results.
Considering the preferred methods of treatment, some of them are not permanent treatment processes. If the patient is overweight, the techniques used in obesity surgeries are used for treatment. Type-2 diabetes patients are extremely unlikely to be underweight. However, if the patient is weak and a permanent treatment method is needed, transit bipartition should be preferred.
In metabolic surgery operations, stomach volume is limited. In order to control blood sugar, approximately 70% of the stomach must be rendered dysfunctional. The first stage is completed after the stomach is removed and the incision points are closed by stapling. Then, the intestines are intervened and some of them are cut. It is connected under the stomach as the second way, two different intestinal tracts are formed.
As a result of the surgery, digestion is accelerated and the amount of sugar mixed with the blood is reduced. As the rate of passage of food into the lower intestine increases, the amount of insulin hormone increases along with it. As a result, the factors causing diabetes are eliminated and a permanent treatment is offered. Our specialist doctors working in our clinic perform extremely successful surgeries with their vast knowledge. Our patients are followed up after the surgery, and all the details that will increase their quality of life are taken care of.
