BARIATRIC SURGERY

Obesity Centre

Bariatric surgery is the only solution to weight-loss when diet, exercise, and tricks don’t work. Usually, bariatric surgery is considered a viable option when the body mass index (BMI) is over 35. However, it only works when there is an equal effort from your side and the doctors of your chosen bariatric clinic. It is important to remember that bariatric surgery will only work when you adopt strict dietary changes and some sort of regular physical exercise.

BARIATRIC SURGERY DEPARTMENT

At the Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib Hospital has been established for years and has seen different advancements and improvements in the methods to curb obesity and weight-related issues. We are aware of the latest practices in the bariatric field and have been benefitting our patients with the advanced treatment.

Our team of Bariatric surgeons, psychologists, psychiatrist, nurses, Bariatric dietitians, endocrinologists, and anesthetists is capable enough to handle any case. The patients are well- supported at every stage by our professionals so the best results can be achieved.

For Bariatric surgery, the medical expert will choose a treatment method appropriate for the patient after going through his or her medical history and condition. It may or may not involve assessment from our psychologists and dieticians. We understand that each case is different when it comes to obesity surgery and our experts treat it the best way possible.

The treatment plan is not chosen by an individual.

Usually, there is a team of health experts belonging to different fields of medicine who pour their opinions considering the varied aspects of patient’s medical condition and history. Some patients can go to bariatric surgery directly while others may require some prerequisites before they can be cleared for the surgery. The end result is to form a road map for bariatric surgery from pre-surgery stages to the post-surgery care and attention.

Despite the popular belief, Bariatric surgery is not cosmetic surgery. You cannot decide to undergo it just for vanity. Bariatric surgery is for people who have serious weight issues and that’s impacting their overall health and well being. The common traits of patients who are eligible for bariatric surgery are;

  • The weight is more than 100 lbs than the ideal body weight.
  • The body mass index (BMI) is more than 35 but the patient has high blood pressure or diabetes due to being overweight.
  • The body mass index (BMI) is more than 40.
  • The healthy body weight cannot be maintained for a long period of time, despite the dieting under the supervision of a medical expert.

We have just mentioned some scenarios that qualify a patient for bariatric surgery. That doesn’t mean you should hide away from meeting with a bariatric surgeon and discussing stomach reduction surgery for yourself. We encourage our patients to reach out and at least discuss their situation. The ultimate decision to go through the bariatric surgery will be taken by our health experts.
