Patient could lose 60 kg in months after gastric procedure

An obese patient weighing 210 kg is expected to lose up to 60 kg over the next six months following a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy procedure.

That’s according to doctors at Medeor 24×7 Hospital, who say the 33-year-old patient was released just two days after having 75 to 80 per cent of his stomach removed laparascopically.

The hospital says obesity-related procedures at the facility have tripled in the past three years due to the high incidence of excessive bodyweight and related diseases in the country.
