Being morbidly overweight is not easy to live with. It brings down the quality of life, restricts mobility, causes intense issues in a person’s social life and can be the singular factor by which a person is judged. At Aster CMI, the Bariatric Surgery department works on providing such morbidly obese people with hope, through treatment protocols that ensure one is brought back to society to live a normal and productive life. At Aster CMI, the whole spectrum of metabolic surgeries is performed through minimally invasive laparoscopic or Robotic surgery. The precision that robotic surgery affords a bariatric is unprecedented, in terms of freedom of movement and the ability to address unexpected complications quickly and efficiently. Procedures such as sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypasses, mini gastric bypass and banded sleeve gastrectomies are performed on a regular basis. The scars are minimal and the healing process quick – there is no blood loss or the use of numerous tubes. Patients need to stay in the hospital post-surgery for 2-3 days. They have prescribed a liquid protein diet for a few weeks before they are called back in for an evaluation. By this time they will be back on their feet.
All of the facilities for examination and supportive examination that include sleep studies, cardiac and respiratory medicine department and consultations with Bariatric physicians is offered before the surgery. Post the operation patients are offered weight management services inclusive of diet and nutrition care as well as rehabilitation and physiotherapy where necessary.
