• Weight-loss & Bariatric Surgery

Obesity has become one of the most challenging diseases to cure. If you have tried to lose weight through conventional means and failed, then surgery may be the solution for you. There are many types of weight-loss surgery, and they are known collectively as “bariatric surgery”. These surgeries alter your digestive system to help you lose weight by restricting how much you can eat, or by reducing the absorption of nutrients, or both.  As well as leading to weight loss, bariatric surgery can also lower high cholesterol and blood pressure. With time, the surgery can stop the progression of obesity, help alleviate breathing problems, and reduce the risks of developing new serious conditions.

Why Choose Bariatric Surgery?

The first step in trying to cure obesity is to adhere to a sound diet and exercise program. If these don’t work, another non-surgical procedure to consider is Elipse gastric balloon or an intragastric balloon to reduce your appetite; we offer the Orbera intragastric balloon (an endoscopic six-month balloon). However, if all else fails to provide a satisfactory outcome in moderately and severely obese people, then bariatric surgery could be the most appropriate next step towards weight loss and improved health. Among the risks associated with obesity are certain cancers, heart disease and strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, gallbladder disease and gallstones, osteoarthritis, gout, and breathing problems such as sleep apnea.

We focus on laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for the gastric bypass, mini gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and gastric banding procedures at Novomed Surgical Hospital in Dubai. All of these procedures have their own set of advantages and issues, and our specialist will advise which would be most appropriate for you.
