Medical experts say that the epidemic of the 21st century is obesity. The changes which have come in our lifestyles and dietary habits have led us to this disease and this disease further leads us to innumerable illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, joint disorders, early onset of bone diseases, and other metabolic diseases. But another hallmark of the 21st century is its advancement of medical sciences, believes Dr JS Rajkumar. From kidney transplant to surgical removal of obesity, everything has become possible now.
Recently, a “high-end laparoscopic surgery and bariatric surgery” was performed by surgeons on a woman whose body mass index (BMI) was more than 40 and weight was 108 kg. The surgery was performed by Dr. JS Rajkumar and Dr SP Ilango at AUM hospital, Puducherry.
Dr JS Rajkumar believes that the bariatric surgery of the woman is a permanent removal of weight. The woman went through ‘sleeve gastrectomy’, as revealed by Dr JS Rajkumar and Dr SP Ilango. AUM hospital is a multi-specialty private hospital which has introduced high end laparoscopic and bariatric surgery for the first time. Laparoscopic surgery stands in opposition to cosmetic surgery and is much better.
