He has enormous experience in laparoscopic Bariatric Surgeries for obesity, laparoscopic Metabolic Surgeries for type 2 diabetes, laparo-endoscopic single site surgeries (LESS) and advanced Laparoscopic Surgeries.He has keen interest in medical research and published several articles in national and international journals. He is an invited faculty for several national and international conferences and presented several papers in these conferences. He regularly conducts continuing medical education programs for doctors, awareness programs and support group programs to educate general public about Metabolic , Bariatric and Advanced Laparoscopic surgeries.
His prime area of professional practice is bariatric & metabolic surgery to treat obesity and its co-morbid medical conditions. Bariatric surgery is the only scientifically proven safe and effective method for permanent weight loss and it also resolves co-morbid medical conditions in significant number of patients. There is a general lack of awareness about the physiology of obesity and the reasons behind failure of diet control, exercise, low calorie diet products, liposuction and cool sculpting to achieve permanent weight loss. He is interested in educating physicians, patients, general public about healthy diet, regular physical exercise to prevent obesity and bariatric surgery to treat obesity. He is interested in further research into the reasons why patients achieve permanent weight loss after bariatric surgery. Based on this we can develop non surgical methods to treat obesity which is beneficial to several obese individuals who don’t come into the category of bariatric surgery. Many people are not aware that metabolic surgery is better than medical management in the treatment of type II diabetes with obesity. Metabolic surgery results in long term remission and in some, resolution of type II diabetes even in patients without obesity.
