Our dedicated team of bariatric surgeons, dieticians, and nurses work with our multidisciplinary support specialists to provide effective and sustainable treatment for weight loss, metabolic and bariatric problems such as diabetes and hypertension.
In addition to nutritional counseling, exercise, and medication, we also offer a range of interventional options to cater to patients with mild, moderate, and severe morbid obesity.
Weight Loss, Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Procedures
A new, non-surgical, totally reversible procedure where a silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth in a 15 minute endoscopic procedure. The balloon induces satiety to facilitate short-term weight loss and is removed after 6 to 8 months.
An inflatable silicone band is inserted and placed around the upper stomach using keyhole surgery to create a small pouch and narrow passage into the remainder of the stomach. This gastric restriction results in a feeling of fullness with a small meal. About 60% Excess Weight Loss can be achieved in the long term.
Laparoscopic gastric stapling is performed to convert the stomach into a narrow tube. This is an adaptive procedure that restores the neuroendocrine response to food. Food limitation also helps to achieve a 70% Excess Weight Loss in the long term.
