Bariatric surgery is generally performed on people who are obese. Obesity is a condition where a personâs Body Mass Index or BMI (calculated by dividing height by weight) is more than 30. Obesity is a huge issue in India with morbid obesity affecting 5% of the countryâs population.
Obesity needs urgent attention as it can lead to medical conditions that can prove fatal. It is linked with many medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnea, heart disease, knee osteoarthritis, stress urinary incontinence, fatty liver, etc. It is increasing at an alarming rate and requires newer strategies for treatment and prevention. Thanks to the active promotion of treatment options over the last decade, 10 to 15 per cent of obese patients are now opting for surgical treatment.
