Dr. Simon N. Gicharu, Kenya.

Very Humbled. The Nurses and Doctors are amazing. I received the best care and am very confident that I am getting world class treatment. My comment to one nurse summarizes my experience – Other nurses in other countries need to come to India to learn the art of Nursing.

Mr SGN, 50 year old male from Kenya, weighed 135 kg and suffered from recurrent attacks of gout. In addition, he also had high cholesterol levels and was pre-diabetic. He underwent Robotic Mini Gastric Bypass, and within a week went back home. 6 months later, his sugars, cholesterol and uric acid levels had normalized, and his weight reached 100 kg. He is now healthier, and does not have any further health concerns.

Really great work.

Me and my wife are both happy now, all thanks to Dr Palep!

Mr BD, 42 year old male, was suffering from uncontrolled Type II Diabetes Mellitus (on 2 oral drugs), hyperthyroidism (high doses of anti-thyroid medications) and high cholesterol uncontrolled with medicines, all due to his morbid obesity. He underwent a Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass, and stuck to his diet and exercise routine after surgery. Now, 1 year after the surgery, he has lost 40 kg and his BMI has dropped from 38 to 27 kg/m2. The biggest improvement for him is that his Diabetes mellitus has resolved completely. His HbA1c (Glycosylated Hemoglobin) has fallen from an unacceptably high value of 9.3% to a normal value of 4.75% in just 6 months. His doses of anti-thyroid medications have reduced, his cholesterol is now normal, and he is happier than ever.
Seeing his remarkable improvement, his wife has also undergone bariatric surgery for her medical diseases.

A 28 year old male, was suffering not only from morbid obesity, but also asthma and anxiety attacks. Tired of his excessive weight hampering his social life, he decided to opt for weight loss surgery. On the day of the surgery, he had a last minute crisis, and did not want to undergo the surgery out of fear. However, with gentle support and encouragement, he finally mustered the courage to undergo a banded sleeve gastrectomy. Now, 6 months after the surgery, he has lost weight, his fertility has improved, and he has not had any asthma or anxiety attacks.

Very happy! Very confident! Thanks Dr Palep.

Mrs SB, a 56 year old female, has already fought a battle with endometrial cancer. Her cancer surgeon recommended bariatric surgery as an option, so that losing her excess weight would reduce her risk of developing cancer again. (It has been proven in international studies that losing excess weight prevents the occurrence of breast and endometrial cancers.) In addition, she also had Uncontrolled Type II Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension and Hypothyroidism. Within 6 months of undergoing Laparoscopic Banded Sleeve Gastrectomy, not only has she lost weight, her Diabetes and blood pressure are under control, and the dosage for her thyroid medicines has decreased. She is now more active and energetic.

Really great work.

Thanks to bariatric surgery, I am walking the way I did 20 years back

Mrs. SS, weighing 113 kg, was prepared to undergo a total knee replacement, when her joint replacement surgeon suggested that losing excess weight might help her avoid it. Remembering her previously failed attempts at liposuction and tummy tuck, she decided to opt for bariatric surgery, hoping that this would control her thyroid problems too. With a BMI of more than 45 kg/m2, she was offered robotic bariatric surgery. Now, three years later, she weighs 58 kg, walks normally, and is medication free ever since.

Really great work.

Thanks to Dr Palep for bariatric surgery. This has benefited my health greatly.

Mr JKB, 72 years of age, was suffering from uncontrolled Type II Diabetes Mellitus for over 15 years due to his morbid obesity. Weighing 120 kg, he tried a variety of weight loss techniques, but none provided a lasting result. On hearing about metabolic surgery from his sister (who also underwent the surgery with us) to reverse diabetes, he instantly decided to opt for it – anything was better than living a life revolving around diabetes and insulin. Within 3 months of the surgery, his diabetes was reversed, and within a year of the surgery, he lost upto 40 kg. Now, he lives diabetes – free and is off all medications for diabetes and hypertension.

Really great work.

Due to Diabetes, I almost lost my foot, and was at risk of never being able to walk again. Thankfully, I got the right advice in time, and decided to undergo bariatric surgery. Ever since the surgery, I am off all medicines for Diabetes, and my foot has healed. I can now walk normally.

45 year old male, was suffering from uncontrolled Type II Diabetes Mellitus and Hypertension with morbid obesity. Living alone in Bahrain, he couldn’t socialize or carry out his job due to all his medical illnesses. His Diabetes progressed to such an extent, that despite insulin and oral hypoglycemic drugs, he developed a severe infection in his left foot, leading to an amputation of 4 of his toes in the left foot, and a large non-healing infected ulcer despite highest possible antibiotics.

Tired of all his medical issues, He turned to bariatric surgery for help. Once his wound was cleaned and infection reduced, he underwent a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass. The very next day, he saw his sugars lowered. Despite being off insulin, his wound started improving, blood pressure normalizing, and he started losing weight.

Now, at 3 months after the surgery, He has lost almost 40 kg of his excess body weight. He is off all medicines for his Diabetes and blood pressure, and his foot has healed completely. Now he has returned to his job in Bahrain, healthier and happier.
