Morbid obesity (severe obesity) is a condition where the patient fails to lose weight through diet and exercise, and can lead to serious health problems. In such cases, Bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery is advisable.

Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold, causing malabsorption of nutrients, or by a combination of both gastric restriction and malabsorption. At BIG Hospitals we perform weight loss surgeries using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery). All the surgical procedures take place in our high-tech operating theatres with all the necessary backup facilities.

Many patients undergoing bariatric surgery experience rapid weight loss, but the long-term success of the procedure necessitates a commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. While initial weight loss is significant, some individuals may regain a portion of the lost weight over time. To prevent this, it's crucial for patients to adhere to dietary and exercise guidelines prescribed by their medical team. These recommendations not only aid in sustaining weight loss but also contribute to overall well-being. Moreover, lifelong medical follow-up is essential to monitor health and address any potential issues or adjustments required post-surgery, ensuring the sustained success of bariatric interventions and the continued improvement of the patient's quality of life.
