Our Solutions To Obesity

Bariatric Surgery

The surgical treatment of obesity (bariatric surgery) is the most rapidly growing area of surgical practice today. This reflects both the ability of bariatric surgical procedures to provide a solution to an otherwise insoluble problem and the evolution of safer, less invasive procedures. Today there are essentially three procedures in use: laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and biliopancreatic diversion. Bariatic surgery provides hopes and a brand new life for obese people who want to lose weight for good and become healthy.
