Metabolic Surgery / Diabetic Surgery

"Diabetes is an all-too-personal time bomb which can go off today, tomorrow, next year, or 10 years from now - a time bomb affecting millions like me and the children here today" – Mary Tyler Moore

Metabolic surgery is a groundbreaking surgical procedure which serves as an effective cure for type II diabetes mellitus. Type II DM is associated with the phenomenon called “insulin tolerance” which means that blood glucose is not responsive to the presence of insulin; the hormone responsible for regulating carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the body. Until recently, the only treatment option for type II DM is diet, exercise and medications which lower blood sugar levels but such conservative methods unfortunately does not completely eliminate the disease. Thanks to technological advances and research a surgical cure is finally available which can get rid of the disease once and for all.

Dr. Dineros is the first and by far the only surgeon qualified and capable of doing Metabolic Surgery in the Philippines. His knowledge in metabolic surgery has evolved from his expertise in the fields of bariatric surgery, obesity management and nutrition. Dr. Dineros has successfully developed his own surgical technique in metabolic surgery which he has skillfully refined, the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy with Loop Duodenojejunal Bypass. Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass is similarly utilized for the non-obese Type 2 Diabetic resistant to conventional treatment.
