Weight Loss Surgery – Simple and Effective

Bariatric Surgery has been developed keeping the complex conditions of different patients. While obesity becomes morbid, surgery is the only assured method to get rid of it.

Since we are reckoned as the best bariatric surgery hospital in India, we leave no stone unturned to help patients to recover as quickly as possible. 

Bariatric Surgery Process

At first, the patient goes through a thorough check-up for overall health conditions. Then the method of surgery is decided by the type and severity of obesity and the patient’s choice. The basic goal is to restrict food intake or food absorption. It is done by different methods like using a gastric band to limit the stomach size, or Sleeve Gastrectomy, which is removing a section of the stomach by surgery. It is also done by the Gastric Bypass Surgery, where the small intestine is rerouted to a small stomach pouch.

Weight Loss Surgery alone is not the answer for weight loss. It can train you to eat less but you still have to follow a healthy life style to make most out of the surgery. Post bariatric surgery, follow up is very important in maintaining the healthy weight. Our post-operative care team includes doctor, dietician and psychiatrist to fix a set of treatment programs.
