Bariatric Surgery(Obesity weight loss surgery)

A Novel Approach to a Serious Problem

Bariatric surgery also known as weight loss surgery is a boon to obese people. It helps them to lose significant weight over a period of 1 ½ half year.

Bariatric surgery is a tool to weight loss. It also helps to cure or control the type II diabetes or other co-morbidity of obesity.

Laparoscopic Approach to weight loss surgery

When a Laparoscopic operation is performed, a small video camera inserted into the abdomen allows the surgeon to conduct and view the surgery on a video monitor. The camera and surgical instruments are usually inserted through small incisions made in the abdominal wall.

Laparoscopic procedures for weight loss surgery employ the same principles as their “Open” counterparts and produce similar excess weight loss.:


  • Less post – operative pain
  • Fewer wound infections
  • Fewer incisional hernias
  • Faster recovery and return to pre-surgical level of activity
  • Ability to maintain excess weight loss on long term basis.
