Minimal Access / Laparoscopic Surgery

Morbid obesity is a chronic and lifelong disease caused primarily by excessive fat storage.

Being overweight and obese are reversible conditions that can be treated by medical management whereas surgical treatment is required to treat morbid obesity.The body mechanisms that control a person’s weight are set in such a manner in morbid obese people that they tend to gain weight easily.These patients find difficult to lose weight as well as sustaining it.

It is extremely health hazardous as it is associated with medical, psychological, social, physical and economic morbidities. The risks that are associated with it are:

  • The person is prone to develop high blood pressure, diabetes (type 2), gallstone disease, stroke, cancer of colon, breast and prostate.
