Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is generally performed on people who are obese. This means that they have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or above. BMI classifies individuals as underweight, overweight or obese. It is calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by the square of your height in metres, i.e.

BMI = weight (kg)

height (m2)

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 apnoea, heart disease, knee osteoarthritis, stress urinary incontinence, fatty liver, etc. Statistics prove that obesity is a serious problem in India, with morbid obesity affecting 5 per cent of the country’s total population. The condition 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.

  • Your BMI is > 37.5 kg/m2
