Weight Loss, Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Procedures
ENDOSCOPIC INTRAGASTRIC BALLOON

A new, non-surgical, totally reversible procedure where a silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth in a 15 minute endoscopic procedure. The balloon induces satiety to facilitate short-term weight loss and is removed after 6 to 8 months.

LAPAROSCOPIC ADJUSTABLE GASTRIC BAND

An inflatable silicone band is inserted and placed around the upper stomach using keyhole surgery to create a small pouch and narrow passage into the remainder of the stomach. This gastric restriction results in a feeling of fullness with a small meal. About 60% Excess Weight Loss can be achieved in the long term.

LAPAROSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY

Laparoscopic gastric stapling is performed to convert the stomach into a narrow tube. This is an adaptive procedure that restores the neuroendocrine response to food. Food limitation also helps to achieve a 70% Excess Weight Loss in the long term.

Nutritional Services at PanAsia Surgery

Our in-house dietetics and nutrition clinic provide a complete nutritional assessment and counselling for patients with weight-related problems or medical conditions requiring diet control, such as renal failure, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

We also provide surgical nutrition support for patients with swallowing problems and short bowels, including the insertion and care of Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) tubes, naso-gastric / naso-enteric feeding tubes and other feeding devices.

Hear from Our Patients

"I went for a colonoscopy, gastroscopy, and hemorrhoidectomy procedure with Dr Melvin Look. It was nerve wrecking for me to go under general anesthesia (GA) but Dr Look eased my fears with his calm and confident demeanour along with his funny disposition. Had a smooth and successful procedure with attentive pre- and post-op care from Dr Look who has been very patient with all my questions before and after the surgery!"

I met Dr Sam Peh in 2018 when I was admitted to parkway east hospital for acute unrinary retention . Subsequently in the same year I had TURP procedure .Some tissues from TURP was found to be cancerous . We just monitor the situation on 6 monthly psa reading In 2020 the psa reading spiked and am MRI scan shows 2 lesions in the prostate Dr. Peh give me the option to burn the 2 lesions using the HIFU technology. I’m glad to use HIFU as the downtime was like only a day. Dr Peh always explain the procedures to me using simple layman’s language and with drawings as illustrations. I feel safe and confident with Dr Peh as my urologist.

I decided to seek help from Dr Melvin Look and was scheduled very quickly for a scope - to give me a peace of mind. Nursing team was also assuring and patient with me when I had questions on insurance & costing . I was very well advised at every step of the way! Thank you Dr Look and to the nurses who attended to me at pan asia!
