I have a friend who suffers from severe obesity and he can’t be treated through diet and exercise alone because it is a chronic condition. Thus, the doctor told him about Gastrointestinal surgery which can be an option for a person who is severely obese and cannot lose weight by traditional means or who suffers from serious obesity-related health problems. He has been told that the operation promotes weight loss by restricting food intake and in some operations, interrupting the digestive process.
While searching fro information online on Gastrointestinal Surgery, we came across
JD Healthcare's Gastrointestinal Surgery Hospital performs advanced and complex surgical procedures on routine basis.
• Basic and advanced Laparoscopic surgery for various intra-abdominal problems viz gall bladder stones, appendicitis, hiatus hernia, intra-abdominal tumors, splenic pathology etc.
• Complex liver, biliary and pancreatic operations are routinely performed.
• Acute abdominal emergencies and abdominal trauma routinely treated.
• Cancer surgery of gastro intestinal tract.
What I would like to know is whether someone has ever had recourse to this kind of operation?
Is it safe? Is there any risk in doing this operation?
