INFRASTRUCTURE

Bariatric patients’ needs are different from normal patients because of their excess weight and therefore they need wider cots, transport chairs and stronger toilet systems. Bearing this in mind, our hospital rooms have been redesigned to provide them all possible comfort during their stay with us. A state-of-the-art operating room with the latest integrated laparoscopic system and special instruments are used to aid in safe surgery.

Bariatric surgery or (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re- routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery).
