I performed Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy on Mr. Ram Mohan on 14th June 2014. He used to weigh 134 kg before surgery. His present weight is 89 kg. He lost 45 kg in 1 year, and maintaining weight loss since then. Before surgery, he tried to lose weight by several methods, but was unsuccessful. Now he is fit and healthy.
Bariatric surgery is a scientifically proven, safe and highly effective method for long lasting weight loss. Metabolic surgery can result in long term remission or resolution of type 2 diabetes in significant number of individuals. Weight loss and resolution of type II diabetes after bariatric/ metabolic surgeries are mainly due to hormonal changes. Role of food restriction or malabsorption is secondary.
