Unfortunately in this era of commercialization of health sector only rich and wealthy people can afford bariatric surgery. “The economical aspect of bariatric surgery need to change” said, Dr. R.K. Mishra, Director, World Laparoscopy Hospital. Even today, people who fall under the low socioeconomic status are unable to connect to the multi-disciplinary approach essential for this surgery to achieve success. There isn’t enough funding, too few appropriately trained staff, psychology departments which are overstretched or simply not able to work one to one for more than a limited number of sessions is the problem all over World.

It is a myth that hospital think all the patient who need laparoscopic bariatric surgery are rich but it is not true. Many patients who are morbid obese can noy afford the expensive bariatric surgery. For those patients World Laparoscopy Hospital is offering Gastric plication surgery at much affordable cost.

To overcome these problems in bariatric surgery WLH initiative is very encouraging for people who cannot afford this surgery. Are we all ready to put our hands into our pockets and make substantially higher national insurance payments? World Laparoscopy Hospital, a world leader in robotic and minimally invasive surgery, announced the addition of cutting-edge bariatric laparoscopic surgery to its long list of innovative surgical offerings at its campus in Guragon, India.

Various studies all over the world have proved that minimal access surgical treatment is probably the most dramatic and sturdy treatment choice for morbid obesity. With the current robotic surgical procedures, a loss of 68-78% excess body weight is lost. The most dramatic loss is incorporated in the first 6 months. The procedures like Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Sleeve gastrectomy reduce intake of food because of early filling in addition to decreased hunger. This avoids ‘starvation’ to obtain slimmer.

With the assistance of a state of the art, four-arm da Vinci Surgical Robot, surgeons at World Laparoscopy Hospital are able to provide minimally invasive bariatric weight loss treatment that lasts. Along with a procedure from world-class surgeons, patients are given strategies and support before, during and after the surgery to guide them on their way to weight loss and greater health.

“I am very satisfied after my sleeve gastrectomy surgery,” said patient Supriya Nagwani. “The postoperative care given to me was marvelous. Now I have a new life and I will definitely follow the advice given to me.”

Medicare in whole world is facing exactly the same dilemma and forecasts that type 2 diabetes and also the resulting costs will crush the stapler and other consumables necessary to perform bariatric surgery, as predicted. Most importantly I am still as likely, if not more likely, to build up age-related or obesity-related disease for example type 2 diabetes.

The World Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons has certified the hospital as a Center of Excellence, an honor reserved for the top laparoscopic centers in the world. World Laparoscopy Hospital specializes in some of the most difficult bariatric laparoscopic procedures, such as bariatric treatment for adolescents, high-risk patients and those with Type 2 diabetes.
