“The sleeve gastrectomy is a great procedure as a standalone for patients below a BMI of 50 as the weight loss is phenomenal. The nutritional requirements in terms of supplements post-operatively are minimal because they only need to take multi-vitamin and may just need some vitamin B12. For BMI more than 55, it can be used as a stage-1 procedure prior to conversion to a gastric bypass because weight loss with sleeve Gastrectomy pre-operatively can really reduce the risk of a gastric bypass tremendously.
I have been in top centers in United States for my training and while I was working in New York. The facilities here are good if not better than most centers in the world, both in terms of expertise and the physical structure as well as the equipment.
We have the latest high definition audio-visual equipment in the operating theaters. We have the same instrumentation that are used in New York. And the rooms are excellent. The support staff is quite good and in terms of my training, I trained in the US. I have done more than 800 bariatric procedures and with excellent results.

Communication is not a problem especially with US patients and even patients from other countries. We have interpreters available around the clock, so they should have no problem here.”
