The Bariatric team has years of experience with some of the best international surgeons in the field and therefore offers quality services in terms of surgical management as well as counselling, and post operative management.
Obesity is a Disease:
Clinically severe obesity and/or morbid obesity are recognized as major public health risks throughout the world. Severe obesity is most likely a result of a combination of genetic, psychosocial, environmental, social and cultural influences that interact resulting in the complex disorder of both appetite regulation and energy metabolism.
Morbid obesity can lead to a shorter life and many life-threatening health problems, known as co-morbidities which include, but are not limited to, cardiac disease, type II diabetes mellitus, obstructive sleep apnea, hypertension, dyslipidemia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, stress urinary incontinence, arthritis of the weight bearing joints, infertility and some cancers. Recent studies show that the risk of an early death for those struggling with obesity is twice that of a non-obese person .
Medical treatment for this disease has included dietary manipulation, behavior modification and medications. These therapies have been tried individually and in combinations, but with only limited long-term success.
Laparoscopic Bariatric surgery is not just about weight loss, it is also about regaining the tainted self esteem and confidence.
Understanding the psychosocial differences between different patients, we strive to provide a tailor made solution to help navigate the patients through the process of weight loss and life-style modification. Integrating the understanding of morbid obesity as a disease with social implications, we try to walk you comfortingly through the journey towards a healthy life.
Patients are assessed by a multidisciplinary team with pre as well as post-operative counselling and support. We are offering a complete range of Bariatric Surgical procedures which include bothRestrictive as well as Malabsorptive Bariatric procedures.
Our Mission is to provide complete medical, surgical and psychosocial holistic approach towards the management of obesity. We are the first centre in the region of Western UP and Uttarakhand to be successfully running a Bariatric Surgery centre. Our commitment to your health as well our state of the art OTs and ICU and trained workforce enable delivery of safe and comfortable treatment in the field of Bariatric surgery.
