Hospital Affiliation:

Kalyana C. Nandipati, M.B.B.S. is specially trained in esophageal surgery and bariatric surgery. He also has expertise in minimally esophagectomies (MIE, for esophageal cancer) and advanced reflux and endoscopic surgeries. Dr. Nandipati has co-authored nearly 75 peer-reviewed articles and abstracts on a variety of subjects, and written several textbook chapters including in the field of reflux disease, weight loss surgery and more. Dr. Nandipati is the director of the esophageal center at CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center Bergan Mercy. Esophageal center has been actively involved in providing expert opinion for difficult foregut issues like reflux disease, barrett’s, motility disorders like achalasia and esophageal cancer.
Dr. Nandipati performs anti-reflux (fundoplication’s, LINX) procedures, reoperations for failed reflux surgery, para-esophageal hernia repair, Heller myotomy and esophagectomy (laparoscopic/thoracoscopic) for benign and cancer disease.

He also performs weight loss surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric banding (Lap Band®), Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and re-operative bariatric surgeries.
He has expertise in endoscopic interventions for esophageal disease (BARx and POEM) and bariatric surgeries (TORS, ORBERA balloon and Endoscopic sleeve)

The Roux-en-Y procedure involves creating a stomach pouch out of a small portion of the stomach and attaching it directly to the small intestine, bypassing a large part of the stomach and duodenum. Not only is the stomach pouch too small to hold large amounts of food, but by skipping the duodenum, fat absorption is substantially reduced.

A Gastric Band procedure is a purely restrictive surgical procedure in which a band is placed around the upper most past of the stomach. This band divides the stomach into two portions, one small and one large portion. Because food is regulated, most patients feel full faster. Food digestion occurs through the normal digestive and absorption process. Attend a seminar to learn more about Bariatric Surgery.
