The Department of Bariatric Surgery at Aadhar Hospital is dedicated to helping patients achieve significant and sustained weight loss through advanced surgical techniques and comprehensive care. Our team of experienced bariatric surgeons, dietitians, and support staff work together to provide personalized treatment plans to improve health outcomes and enhance quality of life for individuals struggling with obesity and related health conditions.

Comprehensive Bariatric Surgery Program Our comprehensive bariatric surgery program includes a range of surgical options tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient:

  • Gastric Bypass Surgery: A procedure that creates a small stomach pouch and reroutes the small intestine to promote significant weight loss.
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy: A surgery that removes a portion of the stomach, reducing its size and limiting food intake.
  • Adjustable Gastric Banding: A minimally invasive procedure that places an adjustable band around the upper part of the stomach to restrict food intake.
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch (BPD/DS): A complex procedure that combines sleeve gastrectomy with intestinal bypass for maximum weight loss.

Preoperative Assessment and Counseling Before surgery, patients undergo a thorough evaluation to ensure they are suitable candidates for bariatric surgery. This includes:

  • Medical Assessment: Comprehensive health evaluation to identify any underlying conditions.
  • Nutritional Counseling: Guidance on pre-surgery diet and lifestyle modifications.
  • Psychological Support: Assessment and support to address any psychological factors related to obesity and eating behaviors.

Postoperative Care and Support Postoperative care is crucial for successful long-term weight loss. Our program includes:

  • Follow-Up Appointments: Regular check-ups to monitor progress and address any complications.
  • Nutritional Support: Ongoing dietary guidance to ensure proper nutrition and prevent deficiencies.
  • Exercise Counseling: Personalized exercise plans to enhance weight loss and improve overall fitness.
