Are you OBESE?

The word obesity may have negative connotations, but it is simply the medical term for someone whose excess weight poses a health risk. The most useful measurement is weight in relationship to height known as the Body Mass Index (BMI). The calculated BMI allows us to classify whether someone is normal, overweight or obese.

BMI=Weight (kgs)/ (Height in mts) 2

  • BMI Helps in calculation of :
  • How much a person is overweight
  • The risk of medical problems is related to excess weight, so the BMI
  • allows us to estimate this risk
  • The ideal weight for someone based upon their height.

Is Bariatric Surgery right for me?

This surgery is not a cosmetic procedure. Anyone thinking about it should understand that the surgery will cause a reduction in the number of calories you may consume and help obese patients.

This procedure involves the creation of a small gastric pouch. There is very little interference with normal absorption of food. The operation works by reducing food intake & reducing the feeling of hunger. The result is a very early sense of fullness, followed by a profound sense of satisfaction. It is the preferred surgery for patients with metabolic disorders like uncontrolled diabetes.

What is Mini Gastric Surgery?
